Sorry, You're Not a Winner

By Samuel Bailey

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

Liam and Fletch grew up together. Born on the same street. Best mates since primary. Inseparable. The only difference was while Fletch was getting suspended from school, Liam was studying. And now he's going to Oxford. But with Liam gone, who's going to keep Fletch out of trouble?

Sorry, You're Not a Winner explores aspiration, social mobility and getting caught between classes. It asks: if 'making it' means leaving everything you know and everyone you love behind – what's the point?

This powerful and striking play by Samuel Bailey was first produced in 2022 by Paines Plough and Theatre Royal Plymouth, in association with the University of Plymouth's School of Society and Culture, before touring nationally.

'They tell you to go to uni cus you'll meet all these new people and experience all these new things and learn all this stuff and it'll all be sound. Like, it'll only add to your life? But what they don't tell you is to do that, to do all that, you have to be... different.'

Press Quotes

'An intricate and moving study of social mobility... gripping and nuanced... Bailey continues his development as one of the most socially engaged writers working in theatre today'
