14%: Digital Programme


Step aboard a journey into British identity. How do we find belonging? Football shirts? Baked bean sandwiches? This tilting play will be a kick to the senses. Funny, frank and fragrant.

Set against the frenzy of the Lioness’ success, this multi-sensory play invites you on a journey inside the confines of a post-match train carriage. Follow British footballer Nadia and her unnamed, unborn Baby. Prepare for a layered audio-visual experience where internal and external pressures rise.

Lean in close and eavesdrop on the clashing voices and beliefs of other passengers. 14% is a claustrophobic snapshot of the common and clashing identities that define and confine us. With meticulous attention to detail, this thought-provoking production challenges us to reflect on what we use to feel British. When does it matter? When are we in charge?
