‘A subtly insightful (& very funny) tale of the unexpected.’
Circle and Stalls
by Nick Maynard
The canal draws people to it… and so it was for Rob.
One night, as he contemplates his life and the lure of the water, a handsome young man engages him in conversation, and so begins a strange and fractious relationship that could just prove beneficial to them both.
JUMP is a dark comedy that takes an unusual look at contemporary gay life – exploring the possibility of relationships and how they’re not always the way we imagine them.
Developed through Qweerdog's new writing project, Qweer Shorts, JUMP is written by award-winning writer, Nick Maynard (QUARANTEEN, V International Young Theatre Play Writing Contest); and directed by West End theatre director, Scott Le Crass (ROSE, starring Maureen Lipman, Hope Mill Theatre & Ambassadors Theatre, London; TOXIC, HOME, Manchester).
Initially featuring as a short at Hope Mill's LGBTQ+ festival, Turn On in 2023, the script was developed into a one-act play, and had the honour of closing Turn On Fest 2024.
Qweerdog’s Stewart Dylan-Campbell, plays the weary and embittered Rob, whilst Aiden Kane, plays his young, chopsy, adversary, Marc.
Join us as we explore the lives, love-lives and past lives of these two lost souls!
