Nominated for ten UK book awards, Theresa Breslin’s hit novel tells of how two young boys – one Rangers fan, one Celtic fan – are drawn into a secret pact to help a young asylum seeker when all they really want to do is play football for Glasgow City. Now adapted for the stage by Martin Travers, the play has already been produced to great success at Glasgow’s Citizens Theatre.
