Rubber Ring


‘Where can I ‘explore’ by the coast? Rock pools. I can’t get onto Grindr and Tinder: there’s no 4G in Norfolk. The whole world is a singles bar now but I can’t get in. I am sick of feeling like a story that will never get told.’

Jimmy is sixteen, sexually confused and stuck in the seaside town they forgot to bomb. He’s screwed. Well he isn’t actually: that’s the problem… When pop icon Morrissey comes to London, Jimmy flees to the big city to find his hero and himself.

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