Memoirs of An Asian Football Casual

Synopsis

Share:

‘Cause we’re Leicester. We’re all Leicester!’

Away from the racial tensions of 1980s British society and the pressure to stay true to his cultural roots at home, Rushey Mead teenager Riaz Khan, finds his place with Leicester City‘s infamous football hooligans, the Baby Squad.

Decked out in the latest designer gear and ready for a brawl with the rival firm on match day, Riaz and his friends create a multi-cultural gang advocating racial tolerance, where the only labels that matter are on clothes. But as the years go by and the casualties of football firms around the country mount up, Riaz soon discovers the true price of belonging to a subculture of violence.

Now a De Montfort University Lecturer, Memoirs of an Asian Football Casual tells the coming of age story of reformed Baby Squad member Riaz Khan. Join us in September for this gritty, colourful and spirited world premiere Made at Curve production, adapted for the stage by Curve Associate Artist Dougal Irvine. This drama will be directed by Curve’s Artistic Director, Nikolai Foster.
