Ordinary people in extraordinary times.
Set in Northern Ireland, this late 1960s coming-of-age musical is about a group of young men and women who are involved with a local soccer team at the start of a 30-year civil war.

Under the watchful eye of team coach Father O’Donnell, John and Del both show enough promise to pursue careers as professional soccer players. They’re just two regular teenagers who dream of nothing more than girls and soccer. When they find love with their girlfriends Mary and Christine, they become swept up in the events that engulf their community, and each must decide whether to follow their hearts.

Panel discussion hosted by Instructor and Production Dramaturg Mark Fossen: February 23 after the 7:30pm performance.
