About the Event

The story of a group of Belfast young adults from both sides of the religious divide during “The Troubles.”

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Book & Lyrics by Ben Elton

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Ben Elton’s The Beautiful Game is the story of ordinary people in an extraordinary situation. The award-winning musical follows the fortunes of a group of young adults from both sides of the religious divide during “The Troubles” in 1960s Belfast.

Under the watchful eye of team coach Father O’Donnell, John and Del both show enough promise to pursue careers as professional footballers. They’re just two regular youngsters who dream of nothing more than girls and football. When they find love with their girlfriends Mary and Christine, they become swept up in the events that engulf their community and, as time passes, each has to decide whether or not to follow their hearts.

Ben Elton tells their story with wit and compassion, while Lloyd Webber’s evocative score combines heart-searing ballads and stirring anthems with the sounds of Ireland. An inspiring option for both teen and older audiences and performers, this powerful and passionate musical is a joyous celebration of the freedom that love can bring.
