Show listing information


'Hello Georgie, Goodbye Best' is a reimagining of the turbulent weekend footballing legend George Best spent in the Islington flat of Irish actress and intimate friend, Sinead Cusack, in 1971.

George, who was dropped from the Man United for missing training, unbeknownst to anyone journeyed to London regardless and paid a visit to Sinead Cusack.

The play looks at the time spent in her flat and their relationship, which was put under great strain after George's whereabouts were discovered and hordes of press and adoring fans mobbed the flat, entrapping them both there for three days.
