Coach Karen’s Half-Time Team Talk

Coach Karen is the new coach of an under-13 girls football team called the Hopperton Hoops. They’re not the most successful team in the league, in fact they’ve never won a game. And under Karen, this record is unlikely to change. 

A brand new comedy series by Harry Venning (Clare in the Community) about how a young woman with no life experience is desperate to share it with people even younger than herself.

Starring Karen Fishwick (RSC Juliet, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour) as Coach Karen.
