I know this may not be for everyone but hey I am not into football.
Admittedly I will be recommending stuff I've seen in London but know that the Mayflower has some cracking stuff (slightly biased as I used to work there). I used to see a lot of musicals and great shows but haven't for a while. So this is something I hope to keep up.
Recently went to see 'The Dresser' with Reece Shearsmith and Ken Stott as main players. It also has Harriet Thorpe from the Brittas Empire. It's on at Chichester Festival Theatre currently. It's a story of back stage of a play and the dresser getting the star on the stage who has anxiety. It's set in the second world war and during an airraid. Doesn't sound all that from my description but it was pretty moving.
Also saw 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night'. I read the book a few years ago. The play is something else. Really pared back on the stage, a bit of a blank canvas with lots of lighting and clever props popping out from places. How they portray the confusing world for someone with Autism is pretty stunning. As I came out of the threate into Central London's busy streets and noise I could see how people find it difficult.
