RoxyDog – Alex Hill Why I Stuck a Flare Up My Arse for England



This is football. This is what defines my happiness. This is what makes or spoils a weekend. This is what fills my soul with joy and despair. Billy is a die-hard football fan. When he goes viral for sticking a flare between his bum cheeks before England's final, he begins to question his own love of the beautiful game. This new one-man play, written and performed by Alex Hill, asks what it means to be a "die-hard" football fan and explores themes of belonging, tribalism, and toxic masculinity.
