Jumpers for Goalposts

by Tom Wells

Directed by Bruce Akers

 

Synopsis:

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.

Character Descriptions: all ages are relative

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.

Geoff   30's - funny, kind and open.

Danny  20's - Second-in-command and the closest thing the team has to an athlete.

Luke    19 to 25. The least athletic person on the team. Kind, intelligent if rather nerdy.
