Cerys Bradley: Sportsperson
Sportsperson is a work in progress show written and performed by Cerys Bradley (Soho Theatre Young Company, Amused Moose Semi-finalist 2020). It's a show about playing sport and fitting in and how Cerys is quite bad at both of those things. It's also a show about being non-binary, embarrassed about wearing lycra and how spending your childhood in a car whilst your parents watch your brother plays football (and rugby and tennis and cricket) definitely doesn't leave you with a massive chip on your shoulder.
