FROM the first moment he stepped through the turnstiles at Highbury, Nick Hornby was hooked.

The Future is Unwritten presents this hugely successful adaptation of Hornby’s novel, which is back on the stage after ten years.

Directed by Paul Hodson, it digs deep into Hornby’s obsession with Arsenal Football Club as well as being a story of family, football, class, identity and joy.

Harking back to the days when football was the people’s game rather than the realm of corporate sponsors and huge sums of money, Fever Pitch is two halves of fast and funny theatre.

It comes to the Playhouse as part of a new 20-date national tour.
