Experience the uplifting big-screen hit Bend it Like Beckham, as it transfers to the stage at the Phoenix Theatre.
Based on the worldwide film success of the same name, this bright and breezy musical follows the much-loved on-screen tale but adds a few twists of its own.
Natalie Dew stars as Jess, a teenage girl from a Punjabi family in West London who idolises the footballer David Beckham. Showing something of a talent for the beautiful game herself, she is faced with a dilemma when her life comes to a crossroads.
Should she live up to her family's expectations and pursue university, a career and a marriage? Or could she follow her dreams to football glory as her hero did?
This vibrant new production brings on-screen talent to the stage as Preeya Kalidas (Pinky) from the original film cast is joined by Hollywood actor Jamie Campbell Bower (Twilight, Harry Potter, The Mortal Instruments) in his West End debut as Jess's football coach Joe.
Featuring an original score with traditional Punjabi flair, Bend it Like Beckham is an inspiring portrait of modern multicultural Britain.
