Atalanta Forever

Atalanta Forever

Multi-award winning Mikron Theatre Company present two brand-new shows for 2021, Atalanta Forever and A Dog’s Tale, bringing them both to the Lawrence Batley Theatre's Courtyard on Wed 14 July.

Game on! It’s 1920, and in post-war Britain, women’s football is big news. Across the country, all-girl teams are pulling huge crowds in fundraising games for wounded soldiers. Huddersfield amateurs Ethel and Annie take a shot at the big time. Teammates at Atalanta AFC, they’re soon tackling new football skills, mastering the offside rule and kicking back at the doubters.

Come and cheer for Atalanta as our plucky underdogs learn how to play the game, take on the legendary Dick, Kerr Ladies – and find the toughest opponent of all is the FA.

Atalanta Forever is written by Amanda Whittington and directed by Marianne McNamara.
