Jumpers for Goalposts

By Tom Wells
Tuesday 22nd – Saturday 26th September
7.45pm (Saturday matinee 3pm), Main Stage

Barely Athletic are a northern five-a-side football team, struggling in the local gay and lesbian league. Pub landlady Viv is determined to shape up this ramshackle crew of lovable no-hopers and win the cup. But are Danny, Luke, Beardy and Joe up to the job? Or will life, and most importantly love, get in the way?

Tom Wells’ fabulous, five-star romantic comedy about love and the beautiful game was a massive hit on its UK tour and London premiere at the Bush Theatre in 2013. Jumpers for Goalposts is a hilarious great-big-warm-hug of a play that wears its very generous heart on its muddy and grass-stained sleeve.

Tom Wells’ writing is truly exceptional, sparkling with wit and dialogue so natural that at times you forget you're watching a scripted play and feel you're spying on a real-life dressing room...Truly funny and genuinely moving... an utterly charming must-see.” -
