Following the critically acclaimed run of Sports Play by Nobel Prize winner Elfriede Jelinek, which coincided with the London 2012 Olympics, Just a Must is reviving the play for two nights only at the Camden People’s Theatre before embarking on an international tour to three continents and MATT RAY BROWN re-joins the cast.
Sports Play explores, with angry wit, the marketing and sale of human bodies and emotions in sport, questioning our obsession with fitness, body image and high performance at any cost. Blurring the boundaries between theatre and sport, this performance turns Jelinek’s linguistic gymnastics into an Olympic feat for the actors and audiences alike.
