The Twelfth Player (2017) From the pitch to the changing rooms, from the kit room to the tunnel, in the summer of 2017 The Twelfth Player took audiences on a unique exploration of Sixfields Stadium, to view the passionate world of football through the eyes of three generations of Northampton Town Football Club fans. Weaving together virtual and real worlds in front of their eyes, The Twelfth Player cleverly blended filmed and live performance.
The Guardian: ‘The Twelfth Player is slick, witty, family-friendly’, Mark Lawson
A Small Mind at the Theatre Blog: ‘A wonderfully clever show utilising technology and inventive design…unquestionably worth experiencing be you football fan, theatre fan or somewhere in between’.
Audience Comment: ‘Wonderfully imaginative...marvellous blending of reality and what’s on screen’.
