Bend It Like Beckham The Musical is a fantastically feel-good new modern British musical. A celebratory fusion of culture, music, emotions and fun, bursting with warmth, humour and heart.
Jess needs extra time. She is facing the most important decision of her life: live up to family expectations of university, career and marriage, or follow in the footsteps of her hero David Beckham. When the talented teenager is spotted playing football in Southall, a world of unexpected opportunities opens up before her. But as her sister’s traditional Indian wedding approaches, can she keep her family happy and still follow her dreams?
* * * * * "An exhilarating, feel-fantastic show for the whole family. You’ll float out of the theatre on a tide of elation. And then want an action replay!" Georgina Brown, Mail On Sunday
"If this isn’t the show to inspire a generation of young women, I don’t know what is" Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard
Natalie Dew makes her West End debut as Jess, with Lauren Samuels (BBC1’s Over The Rainbow) as her friend Jules. Twilight and Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd star Jamie Campbell Bower plays their coach and Eastenders star Preeya Kalidas takes on the role of Jess’ sister, Pinky.
