The world premiere of Would You Bet Against Us? was at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in May 2022 and toured to various community spaces in and around Birmingham throughout June 2022. 


About the show:

It is 1982. Aston Villa beat Bayern Munich 1–0 to win the European Cup. Around the corner, 16-year-old Paul’s geography teacher tells him he will amount to absolutely nothing. Aston Villa were complete underdogs. So was Paul… And Paul’s geography teacher was a complete ********.

This show celebrates the 40th anniversary of this brilliant event for Aston Villa, for Birmingham, and for Paul! It is a funny and surprising show about proving people wrong and what it means to be a football fan.
