The Cost Of A Player

 

In 2016 Alex was commissioned by The Premier League to develop a play which highlighted the issue and importance of mental health amongst professional athletes, in particular footballers. The show is written for young teenage footballers and is followed by a drama based workshop which further explores the issue with the players.

 

The show was directed by Lisa Schulberg and premiered on April 19th 2016 at the Player Care Conference in Coventry.

 

The Cost Of A Player will hopefully be touring the Premier League football clubs next season with special performance and workshops delivered to the young players.

 

The show is also available for perofrmances in schools and can be used in support of any PSHE teaching.
