Fan/Girl



It's 1998. Geri Halliwell is leaving the Spice Girls, David Beckham is wearing a sarong and somewhere in England a 10-year-old girl is pretending to be Eric Cantona. Absurd, optimistic and joyful, Fan/Girl is a tongue-in-cheek ride through adolescence against a backdrop of nineties football. Award-winning comedian Bryony Byrne's debut show, directed by Ben Target. Expect playful audience inteaction, 90s bangers, stupid comedy and drag.

“A playful, surprising and very timely show.” British Comedy Guide’s Recommended Shows 2022

“ Joyously ramshackle, spirit-of-the-Fringe stuff.” **** The Daily Telegraph

“Loved this show! So much 90s nostalgia and really perfect illustration of what it’s like to be a girl becoming a teenager. A beautiful emotional heart that was unexpected and glorious. See it!” Audience member.

“Quickly elevated itself beyond simply a football show. Some of the most fun audience participation I’ve seen at a show, making the audience feel like we’re all in on the same party.” Audience member.
