'Football is all very well as a game for Rough Girls but it is hardly suitable for delicate boys' ~ Oscar Wilde

The making of Belfast's first all-female football team

This is the untold story of the Belfast women who stepped onto a pitch in society-shocking shorts and footie boots, a ball at their feet and a point to prove

They were the suffragettes of soccer

Rebels with a ball, who kept kicking their way through the outraged defence of a male-dominated game to raise thousands for those returning from war

Set in Belfast 1917-1921 in a city divided by war but still united by sport, the play chronicles the courage and determination of those girls

This original Belfast story based on true events will resonate with the history of the city and chime with the recent equality movements across the sports industry and the cultural sector

This ambitious, large-scale play features an impressive eleven strong female ensemble with live music creating the heartbeat of the city at the time
