Footballers’ Wives The Musical’ is based around the first TV season, and follows the fall and rise of captain’s wife and fabulously flawed super-bitch Tanya Turner as she struggles to save her marriage and the career of her cheating husband, Jason.
Let’s wind back to 2002 when Premier League Football was the new Rock ‘n’ Roll - with the money, the glamour and the bad behaviour to match. At Earls Park FC, the players’ wives are living it to the max.
These WAGs have the designer gear, the palatial homes, the flash cars and the handsome superstar husbands - and the press pack on their kitten heels at every turn.
Footballers’ Wives The Musical contains scenes of an adult nature and absolutely no football, along with disastrous hen and stag nights, a fairy tale wedding, deception, betrayal and murder – plus a surprisingly happy ending.
A studio cast recording was released 25th November 2022 with 18 tracks from the show and featuring a premier league cast led by Alice Fearn.
Here's Alice Fearn recording "Don't Lose It" - released as a single on 28th January 2022.
