BRIGHTON ‘Til I Die, is a fast hilarious and emotional drama following Albion fans Southy and Gerbil as they grow up, grow apart and later reunite their passion for the club.

Aided and abetted by the mysterious music hall turn Mr Albion, the pair take the audience on a roller coaster ride through Albion memories, from humble beginnings to First Division glory, from Cup Final to the end of the Goldstone, Hereford, Gillingham, Withdean, promotion and Falmer.

When the play was first performed in 2001, Albion were homeless and renting a running track in Withdean after the Goldstone Ground had been sold.

Brighton ‘Til I Die was created to celebrate the club’s centenary and ended with a passionate plea for a new stadium.

Now ten years on, the new stadium is about to open and the play is back for three performances only, revived refreshed and ready to celebrate the story of the club and its fans, as they move on to a new beginning.
