The Day We Played Brazil

  • Show Information

As the 2014 World Cup comes to a close and Europe prepares to mark the centenary of the start of WW1 join us to celebrate Exeter’s special place in history.

The Day we Played Brazil celebrates the 100th anniversary of the football match between Exeter City and the Brazil national team – the first-ever game played by Brazil. Based on the extraordinary true story of Exeter City FC’s tour to South America in 1914 this musical play is performed by 100 local people telling the stories of the players and their wives, sweethearts and families back home. With plenty of music, tears and laughter along the way, as well as some great footballing moments, it’s a story of adventure and excitement both on and off the pitch that will take the audience through the highs and lows of the hundred years in Exeter since the outbreak of the Great War.
