Romeo and Juliet to be performed as gay love story between Premier League footballers

Romeo and Juliet to be performed as gay love story between Premier League footballers
- The production, at Union Theatre in central London, will see the two main characters play out their tragic journey as star-crossed lovers on the pitch.

There are currently no out LGBT players in the Premier League.
And the play, which will depict football as a religion with strict, prejudicial ideals, aims to address this issue and the general paucity of out elite sportspeople.
“Currently, not one of the 4000 professional footballers in this country is homosexual. And yet for a large proportion of the country, football is life, love and religion,” the play’s description reads.
