James McDermott presents

A laugh-out-loud one man comedy play about a Norfolk boy’s struggle with sexual and regional identity.

Jimmy is sixteen, sexually confused and stuck in Sheringham. He’s screwed. Well he isn’t actually: that’s the problem… Where can Jimmy ‘explore’ in Norfolk? Rock pools. So when pop star Morrissey comes to London, Jimmy flees to the city to try and find his hero and himself.

Rubber Ring is a coming of age comedy about growing up queer in a rural community, learning to love yourself, love your roots and love without labels.

Why not make a night of it and join us in the Basement Bar after the show for an indie-inspired disco.

Age Guidance: 12+
