'exciting, electric storytelling'

production team

Dyslexia Untied are recruitin’!

So get your kit bag, shin pads and put your mingin’ boots in.

TECTUM Theatre & Brutal Snake Productions are proud to present the raucous, electric world-premiere of Hand Of God, a piece of gig-theatre about the worst five-aside football team in Birmingham.

With music inspired by old-school garage, Hand Of God follows the passionate footballing wonder-kid Kieron who, devoted on winning, winds up captaining the local drug dealers 5-aside team.

Will he finally get the glory he’s been craving, or will everything get too much?

Drugs and raving, pride and unbelievable tekkers fight for centre stage. Hand of God asks the question ‘Can football get men talking about mental health?’

Written by Sam Butters
