One Year Off @ ORL

a play by Forrester & Fletcher

directed by Robert F. Ball

A year off football, will the UK survive?

"A play that hums with novel ideas and assured performances" LondonPubTheatres

"In every aspect of our lives we live by the maxim of ‘everything in moderation’ and football, our biggest indulgence, should be subject to the same common sense." David Cameron

One Year Off tells the story of a UK-wide ban on football.

The government has prohibited the sport for 12 months in a bid to improve the nation’s Happiness Index. Anyone found to be engaging with the beautiful game will be arrested. Even Goldenballs.

Told through the eyes of four people whose lives are defined by football, One Year Off is a play about desperation, delusion and detox. In this surreal comic dystopia, both footie fans and soccer sceptics will find a character to support.

Babe, are you OK? You look different. 'It's like giving a baby a shotgun. Someone's going to get hurt.'

Maggie and Matt are the epitome of ‘normal’. They have normal friends and normal jobs and a normal cat. They are happy. Until their lives are turned upside down, sprayed with champagne and lathered in that expensive, organic peanut butter.

Winners explores our precarious relationship between love, money and happiness. Questioning whether financial security makes things easier, or hiring a chef makes things tastier, or wearing Prada makes you prettier. Because surely money makes everything better?
