‘I’m sixteen. I don’t know whether I like boys or girls. I live in Sheringham. I’m fucked...Well I’m not actually, that’s the problem.’

London’s finest comedy theatre company, Velvet Trumpet are proud to present the critically-acclaimed witty debut play by windswept Norfolk playwright James McDermott.

Jimmy’s sixteen, sexually confused and stuck in Sheringham; the seaside town they forgot to bomb. When Morrissey comes to London, Jimmy flees to the city to try and find his hero and himself.”

“Rubber Ring captures the core of the Morrissey experience. The romance of the outsider, the loneliness of sexual confusion and the bonds that form in the most unlikely places.” London City Nights

“Rubber Ring is a bit like a warm, all-inclusive hug and it is impossible to leave without a feeling of elation. An incredibly assured debut.” Auditorium Magazine

“This solo performance is electrifying.” Scatter Of Opinion
