I’ve just received news of a really interesting play touring the North West which should interest all football fans, and anyone else with a sense of mischief.
It’s an amazing true story of one Liverpool fan’s very odd night in Istanbul.
As you’d imagine it’s a comedy – no doubt made funnier by the fact that it actually happened.
It comes with Jimmy McGovern’s recommendation too.
Written by Radio 4 playwright, John Graham Davies, BEATING BERLUSCONI is based on the bizarre true story of a real Liverpool fan who went to the Istanbul final in 2005, somehow got into the AC Milan Director’s box and then almost had a fight with the Mussolini loving Italian PM when the Reds equalised.
