Why I Stuck A Flare Up My A**e For England

It’s the EURO 2020 Final at Wembley and Billy’s gone viral for sticking a flare up his arse!

Why I Stuck A Flare Up My Arse For England is a blisteringly funny new play that comes to Salford directly from a sell-out, five-star Edinburgh Festival run. Written and performed by Alex Hill, it asks what it means to belong to a club that you live for.

Billy and his best pal Adam are die-hard football fans. It’s how they spend every weekend, without fail. It’s their escape, their religion and their life. But when they encounter a new group of mates, they start to take their support one step further.
