James Graham's Dear England will return to the Olivier Theatre from 10 - 24 May 2025, followed by a four-week run at The Lowry in Salford.

Dear England tells the story of the England men's football team under Gareth Southgate. With this summer's UEFA EURO 2024 tournament about to get underway, Graham's critically acclaimed play will evolve to include this key European championship. The play will continue to examine the crucial role of the England team and manager in English society.

Writer James Graham (Punch, Nottingham Playhouse; Sherwood, BBC) reunites with director Rupert Goold (Patriots; Tammy Faye, Broadway) for this gripping examination of both nation and game. Goold will be joined by set designer, Es Devlin; costume designer, Evie Gurney; lighting designer, Jon Clark; co-movement directors, Ellen Kane and Hannes Langolf; co-sound designers, Dan Balfour and Tom Gibbons and video designer, Ash J Woodward. Casting is by Bryony Jarvis-Taylor, the dialect coach is Richard Ryder and the associate director is Elin Schofield.

Casting is to be announced.
