Jumpers for Goalposts
by Tom Wells
Directed by Bruce Akers
A hilarious and heart-warming comedy about football, friendship and finding your own way.
Barely Athletic are a pretty ordinary five-a-side football (soccer) team, part of the gay, lesbian and transexual football league in Hull, East Yorkshire.
Luke wants Danny but Danny’s got a secret. Joe is the keeper who couldn’t catch a cold. Geoff’s a struggling busker aiming for a headline gig and Viv, the player-coach, was chucked out of the Lesbian Rovers for being too bossy, just wants to instill some competitive spirit into the boys.

Viv The player/coach, late 30's/early 40's. Ambitious, bossy and determined.
Joe Late 30's/early 40's. The token straight and struggling to get over the death of his wife.
