Gerry & Sewell: A Purely Belter Adventure: Adapted from the Novel the Season Ticket by Jonathan Tulloch (Modern Plays) (Paperback)
Antony Gormley's angel looked down on the lads. She'll see us through, she'll help us. The guardian angel of fucking toe rags.Two lads. One mission. Belter. Sewell and Gerry live in Gateshead. Theirs seems the perfect partnership. Sewell is physically strong, Gerry is small but crafty. Neither has attended school for a long time. Both are broke, and both love one thing, Newcastle United. An exciting adaptation featuring puppetry, live music and a purely belter tale of epic proportions. Based on Jonathan Tulloch's The Season Ticket, adapted by Jamie Eastlake, this edition was published to coincide with the premiere at Laurels Whitley Bay in March 2022, ahead of a UK tour.
