Synopsis


In 1938, Austrian football star Matthias Sindelar humiliated the Nazi regime by refusing to throw a match.


A few months later he was dead.


Accident, suicide or execution?


Inspirational little guy or yet another man and his ego? Who cares?


Middle aged, white British, football addict-in-recovery, Lee Simpson wants answers.


He hires some women to make a show about football, Nazis, and our future.


In a paper world of light and shadow, violence and dance, five performers work together on what sets them apart.


Founded 21 years ago, Improbable are firmly established as one of the UK's most innovative and acclaimed theatre companies.
