Odd Shaped Balls

Odd Shaped Balls

After their four week run at The Edinburgh Festival, with great five star reviews and nominations for two awards Miller Theatre Productions returns with "Odd Shaped Balls" for a limited four day run.

"Sheridan builds an uncannily believable narrative, of how a man confused by his sexuality seeks clarity in a macho sport.; It’s a sympathetic, respectful, but gently challenging script, which poses questions that are as relevant in daily life as they are on the field of play." ***** Fringe Guru

Odd Shaped Balls is a new play exploring the difficulties faced by gay sports stars through the eyes of a young rugby player.

Performed by Chris Sheridan and written by Richard D Sheridan.

When rising rugby star James Hall is publicly outed by his ex his life becomes a struggle of dealing with increased media attention and the pressures of being labelled a role model on and off the pitch, while trying to adapt to changes in his personal relationships.

The show takes an honest and often comical look into the changing room banter of male sports teams and their relationship to their fans and how it can intimidate players to live a lie.

"I had wondered whether this would simply be just another coming out show but I really cared about James and wanted to know what happened next a sure sign of a great script; a moving and unforgettable performance" ***** ScotsGay Magazine
