Jumpers for Goalposts by Tom Wells Directed by John Cocks-Evans
Jumpers for Goalposts is a play written by Tom Wells follow the misfortunes of Barely Athletic, a five-a-side team largely made up of gay men who struggle with the basics of the beautiful game. This doesn't stop Viv, their straight-talking coach with a very short fuse, encouraging her clueless charges to try to win the league in which they play. The play explores their individual struggles, aspirations, and personal relationships as they navigate through life, love, and the challenges of the game. With a blend of humour, heart, and poignant moments, "Jumpers for Goalposts" captures the power of friendship and the universal desire for acceptance and happiness.
