Football fans are in for a treat this month when a comic look at England’s favourite game comes to the Lancaster stage.

Co-commissioned by the Barbican in London, Total Football has attracted fantastic reviews, most of which say that you don’t need to like football to enjoy it.

Ridiculusmus’s show, Total Football – More Beckett than Beckham, is on at the Nuffield Theatre at Lancaster University on November 13 and 14.

Everything about the sport is covered in the show including football systems, why England always lose and the eternal problem of explaining the offside rule.
