Andrew Lloyd Webber and Ben Elton’s The Beautiful Game is the story of ordinary people in an extraordinary situation. The award-winning musical follows the fortunes of a group of teenagers from both sides of the religious divide during “The Troubles” in 1960s/1970s Belfast, where a local football team attempts to overcome the violence that has engulfed their community.
