“I’m not asking you to win. I’m asking you to just: chuck your face at it, have a, have a fucking good go at it. And then we’ll. Yeah. We’ll see.

Luke wants Danny, but Danny's got a secret. Joe wants to play second fiddle, but Geoff wants a headline gig. Viv just wants to beat the lesbians to the league title. Game on.

Set in the scruffy changing room used by a hapless team of friends who play for Barely Athletic, a five-a-side football team in the Gay and Lesbian Sunday League- Jumpers For Goalposts is a hilarious and heart-warming comedy about football, friendship and finding your way in the world from award-winning playwright Tom Wells.



“Wells has given us another winner…Unreservedly recommended.”
★★★★★ The Independent

“You won’t know whether to laugh or cry (you’ll probably do both).”
★★★★★ Public Reviews

“Humane, funny and poignant…some TV company will soon be offering Wells a transfer. Watch him live while you can.”
★★★★ Sunday Times

“Tom Wells’ drama finds extraordinary beauty in the ordinary lives of its characters.”
★★★★ Financial Times

“A surprising, spirited new comedy…it opens its characters’ hearts, and it cracked open mine.”
★★★★ Sunday Express

“Balancing the comic with the emotionally touching…scores a number of goals.”
★★★★ WhatsOnStage

“The comedy is lively, often uproarious…a stunning piece of writing – fresh, funny, painful, engaging.” The Stage
