A new musical in development
We are currently developing Footballers’ Wives – The Musical: Book by Maureen Chadwick, co-creator of the original TV series, and music & lyrics by Kath Gotts.
Footballers’ Wives – The Musical follows the fall and rise of Tanya Turner – Captain’s wife and old school femme fatale – as she struggles to save her marriage and the career of her cheating husband before realising it’s time to move the goal posts and play a new game of her own.
Taking a satirical swipe at tabloid celebrity culture, the show contains scenes of an adult nature and absolutely no football, along with disastrous hen and stag nights, a fairytale wedding, deception, betrayal, Catholic guilt, and murder – plus a surprisingly happy ending.
A first extract from Footballers' Wives will be presented at BEAM2018
- a two day industry showcase for new British musicals, hosted by Theatre Royal, Stratford East on 1st-2nd March 2018.
