Jumpers for GoalpostsPromising new playwright Tom Wells presents Jumpers for Goalposts, a heart-warming romcom about football and friendship at the Bush Theatre this November. Fans of the Bush will already be familiar with Wells's writing - he was responsible for the smash hit comedy The Kitchen Sink which was staged in the west London theatre in 2011 and which won him the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright 2012. "Watch him live while you can" advises the Sunday Times. In this latest work, the same brand of "humane, funny and poignant" humour prevails. This time the action is centered on grassroots football, a group of friends and their changing relationships as they grow up. Originally co-commissioned by Paines Plough Jumpers for Goalposts is directed by co-artistic director of the company, James Grieve, a former associate director at the Bush Theatre.


 

About Bush Theatre

London's essential theatre for new writing has been the first step into the big time for dozens of Britain's best playwrights. Challenging, disturbing and original works are often accepted by the Bush Theatre, and find their way to the West End. Moving from the room above O'Neill's pub in Shepherds Bush Green to the former Shepherd's Bush Library building on Uxbridge Road in 2011, the theatre acquired larger premises as well as a laid back bar/library and cafe (open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 11pm), worth a visit even if you're not here to watch a play.
