Comedy about David Beckham



“We’re very excited by the script - it’s a wild comedy romp that borrows from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, as well as Cyrano de Bergerac,” says Long Road Productions director Ronan Smith.

Victoria Beckham is portrayed as an overly ambitious Lady Macbeth, for whom husband David sacrifices his career, and the list of characters includes Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson and Beckham’s former PA, Rebecca Loos.

Next January in Dublin



The show will open at the Dublin’s Olympia next January. Cooke, who writes and performs with the Apres Match Irish comedy team, and McKenna, an established scriptwriter, are likely to have major roles, with other members of the I Keano cast also appearing.
