Odd Shaped Balls
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A moving, honest and comical one-man show exploring issues of homophobia in sport through the experiences of a young professional rugby player, James Hall, as he deals with the media attention after being publicly outed by his ex. A versatile and dynamic performance sees a range of characters brought to life, from Jim's supportive coach, Aidan, to his outspoken teammate, Jonesy, the main source of changing-room banter. Drawing on recent events, the show looks at how the culture of male sports, and pressure from fans and the press, can intimidate sports stars to live a lie.
