The wait is over, the Mystery Play is…


By  Tom Wells

Having kept you in suspense all year, it gives us great pleasure to reveal that our final production for 2014 will be the Australian Premiere of Tom Wells’ Jumpers For Goalposts.

Tom Healey makes a welcome return to Red Stitch, directing ensemble members Kate Cole and Johnathan Peck along with some special guests to blow the whistle on what has already been an incredible year at Red Stitch. Join us as we kick the final goal of a stellar 2014 season!

Due to popular demand, we have also created a new subscription package to give you huge savings on ticket prices. Our 3 Show Pass enables you to see the final three plays of 2014; Eurydice, The Mesh and Jumpers for Goalposts. See the 3 Show Pass section below for more information on the benefits of purchasing a pass and how to book.

Meet team Barely Athletic. They’re part of the gay, lesbian and transexual football league in Hull. Luke wants Danny, but Danny has a secret. Joe is happy in goal but Geoff wants a headline gig. Viv just wants to beat the lesbians to the league title. Game on.

Jumpers for Goalposts is a blissfully funny romantic comedy about friendship and finding your way. This endearing and poignant play further confirms Wells’ reputation as one of the UK’s most outstanding young playwrights. Red Stitch’s hit production of Wells’The Kitchen Sink enjoyed wonderful critical acclaim:

“An unalloyed triumph” – Chris Boyd, The Australian

“This is first-rate theatre by Red Stitch, which continues to impress”– Catherine Lambert, Herald Sun

“The result is tender, laugh-out-loud funny and quite delightful.” – Rebecca Harkins-Cross, The Age
