Plane Paper Theatre is proud to present our outreach programme:
Odd Shaped Balls: Front Row.
Deciding the right time to come out can be a tough decision for anyone, but for those in the limelight in can be even more daunting. The decision can be entangled with fears of homophobic abuse and negative reactions from their teammates. In a recent study of over 9500 participants, only 1% of lesbian, gay and bi-sexual respondents felt they were fully accepted within sporting culture. Odd Shaped Balls: Front Row aims to work with charities, universities and schools to tackle homophobia in sport and explore theatre as a tool for social change.
As exciting, engaging and entertaining as fringe theatre gets – Gay Times
Rugby player James Hall has the world at his feet. But when his biggest secret is revealed, his whole life begins to crumble around him, and James must decide if he has the courage not only to be true to himself, but also to be a role model for others. Odd Shaped Balls is a funny and poignant one man show that raises awareness of issues surrounding homosexuality in sport and ultimately asks the question: how would you feel if your sexuality prevented you from playing the sport you loved?’
Odd Shaped Balls: Front Row aims to explore issues of homophobia in sport in an innovative and engaging way.
