Liverpool, 1989. Greg is doing everything he can to buy tickets to see LFC in the semi-final against Nottingham Forest. He is willing to beg, borrow and steal with the help of mate Tom to get there… and Tom supports Everton! His mum’s left him, his dad's a knob and the less said about his interactions with girls the better. In this gritty coming-of-age tale we see a snapshot of Greg’s life in the three days leading up to his birthday and the day of the big game. He has been through so much in his few years and has so much more to face.

This show is dedicated to the 96 who lost their lives at Hillsborough and to the friends and families who fought tirelessly for their justice.
