Jess needs extra time.

She is facing the most important decision of her life; live up to family expectations of university, career and marriage, or follow in the footsteps of her hero David Beckham.

When the talented teenage footballer is spotted playing football in Southall, a world of opportunities opens up before her. But as the day of her sister's traditional Indian wedding approaches, Jess needs to pick sides.

From the first pass in the park to the final free-kick, Bend It Like Beckham is a joyous musical comedy with vibrant characters featuring a new score with a Punjabi kick. This brand new British musical is a funny, glorious and uplifting adaptation of the much-loved hit film about refusing to watch from the sidelines, bending the rules, and scoring that deciding goal.

Bend It Like Beckham is written by Paul Mayeda Berges and Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham (film), Bride and Prejudice). The original score is an East-West fusion of Bhangra and soaring joyous melodies with music by Howard Goodall (Love Story, The Hired Man ) and lyrics by Charles Hart (Phantom of the Opera, Aspects of Love, Love Never Dies), pioneer of British Bhangra sound, composer and performer Kuljit Bhamra has collaborated with Howard Goodall to create a truly unique cultural blend of musical theatre. Gurinder Chadha will direct, with choreography and musical staging by Aletta Collins (Anna Nicole, ROH).
