We are fans of this new venture with Handmaid's Tale actor Joseph Fiennes portraying England manager Gareth Southgate in a play at the National Theatre in June. James Graham, the writer of BBC One's Sherwood, said he is grateful to shed light on the men's England football team and the 'quiet cultural reform' Southgate has brought on. Graham said to BBC News that the transformation of the men's England football team over the past six years has been 'quietly extraordinary' and that to tell this story of the national game on stage is an 'intimidating responsibility'. Fiennes, who is the same age as Southgate, has been gaining fame on the big and small screen, while Southgate initiated some changes to the national side in 2016 during what Graham described as an 'existential crisis'. Southgate brought in a psychologist to help the team break free from past woes such as England's penalty shoot-out record. Southgate, remembered for missing a penalty kick against Germany in the Euro 96 semi-final at Wembley, is credited with bringing back the waistcoat. (Image Source: https://metro.co.uk)
Most recently, Fiennes has earned an Emmy nomination for his role in The Handmaid's Tale, and Southgate has been speaking to the England team during their UEFA Euro 2020 final against Italy.
We are admirers of this advancement with Joseph Fiennes, who is the same age as Gareth Southgate, cast in the role of the England manager in a new production at the National Theatre. Titled Dear England, it will explore Southgate's journey since his memorable penalty miss for England in 1996, as well as taking a look at the changes he has made since taking charge of the men's England football team in 2016. The playwright James Graham is grateful to be able to highlight the success of Southgate's 'quiet cultural reform', which he finds 'epic and deeply moving'. Graham, who wrote the BBC One drama Sherwood, expressed his delight at being able to 'shine a light on another public institution' in the form of the England men's football team on the stage of the National Theatre.
