It would have been impossible to predict where Graham's attention would wander to next, and in a move probably no-one saw coming, he's landed on charting the recent history of England's favoured sport: football. Through focusing on the story of England men's team manager Gareth Southgate, Graham's play Dear England explores why, when England gave the world the sport, the men's team have struggled to win at their own game.
Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale, The Mother) plays the player-turned-manager whose journey off the pitch has been tailed by his reputation for having the worst track record for penalties in the world, while Almeida boss Rupert Goold, who directed both Ink and Tammy Faye, steers it onto stage.
