Bend It Like Beckham is a joyous new British musical about where we are now. Featuring an original score with an Indian kick, it brings a unique cultural fusion of musical theatre to the stage for the first time. This reimagining of the much-loved hit film sees generations, cultures and communities brought together in this joyous and uplifting story about bending the rules and scoring that deciding goal.

The show was directed by Gurinder Chadha (writer and director of the film and West end show) with music by Howard Goodall (BBC choral composer, composer of all Mr Bean Films), lyrics by Charles Hart (Phantom of the Opera),
