ENG-ER-LAND

"WALKING UP TO HIGHFIELD ROAD FOR THE FIRST TIME WAS MIND BLOWING. SEEING ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE WITH THEIR SHIRTS AND SCARFS, FEELING LIKE YOU'RE PART OF THAT, FEELING THAT EXCITMENT IN THE AIR."

"A JOY TO WATCH"

- The Reviews Hub

1997. Last year England made it to the semi-finals of Euro 96. Gina G came third in Eurovision and 13 year-old Lizzie went to her first in-person football game: Coventry vs. Manchester City. Not the Man City of today, oil and superstars, but the old Man City – a bit rubbish, but with good fans. Lizzie fells in love with the beautiful game that day, and she’s been obsessed ever since. But then something happens to make her question her place in the stands. ENG-ER-LAND is an energetic play about who’s really on your team.

"EXUDES ENORMOUS
AMOUNTS OF ENERGY"

“Working with WoLab is a dream. They supported me to write my first ever Arts Council Application, and importantly helped me bounce back immediately after rejection the first time to resubmit successfully, right up to a run of performances. I learnt so much during the first R&D process, not just creatively but from a self-producing point of view which has really empowered me as an artist and given me the confidence to put myself out there and look for other opportunities & funding. Knowing I had an established company in my corner made me feel supported and also helped me to connect with other experienced creatives. WoLab’s practices are filled with empathy and kindness for artists and this is an example I am committed to following myself. WoLab is a company at the forefront of leading change in the industry, I’m so proud that they produced ENG-ER-LAND and grateful for all the support I have received.” – Hannah Kumari
