A story about friendship, arm bands, and getting the hang of being a gay teenager in Hull.

Liam is 15. He can’t swim. But he’s an optimist, so he’s just signed up for Hull’s first ever synchronised swimming team.

Tom Wells returns to the Bush Theatre following the critically-acclaimed success of Jumpers for Goalposts and The Kitchen Sink. Three intimate performances of Drip will be performed in our Reading Room.

“Tom Wells is a hugely engaging writer but what makes him so special is his gift of making the small change of everyday lives shine so brightly.”

★★★★★ The Telegraph on Jumpers for Goalposts

This new one-man musical comedy with book and lyrics by Tom Wells and music by Matthew Robins is performed by Andrew Finnigan. Direction by Jane Fallowfield.

Drip is a Script Club production which has been developed with young people across Hull, supported by Arts Council England, Hull City Council and Hull UK City of Culture and in partnership with Boundless Theatre.
