Jumpers for Goalposts

By Tom Wells

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£6.49

A hilarious and heart-warming comedy about football, friendship and finding your way.

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

Tom Wells' Jumpers for Goalposts premiered at Watford Palace Theatre in 2013, before touring the UK, including a run at the Bush Theatre, London.

This volume also includes the short play Jonesy.

‘Meant to be a laugh isn’t it? I thought? Sort of, comedy team names – we’re called Barely Athletic – nothing too, just, banter, jumpers for, for goalposts. Six weeks, four teams, play each other twice. Sunday afternoon fun.’

Press Quotes

'generous, warm-hearted and packed with telling, often very funny detail'

Evening Standard

'blissfully funny but at times deeply affecting too... the dialogue is blessed with sharp one-liners... what makes [Tom Wells] so special is his gift of making the small change of everyday lives shine so brightly'

Telegraph

'Wells has that rare gift of being able to capture the goodness that resides amongst people with an unforced warmth and a highly observant ear and eye for comedy... unreservedly recommended'

Independent

'the delicate balance between humour and pathos is seldom achieved with such deftness... a stunning piece of writing - fresh, funny, painful, engaging'

The Stage

'finds extraordinary beauty in the ordinary lives of its characters'
