Pints vs cocktails.
Maroon 5 vs Lady Gaga.
Matty and Tim’s teenage years were worlds apart.
Boyfriends at last after secretly holding torches for each other as teenagers, everything seems to be coming together. This is 2023, and it’s never been easier to be gay and proud, right? Except it’s 2.47am and Matty has disappeared again, leaving Tim behind to fear the worst as the past, present and potential futures of their relationship explode together like an episode of Doctor Who.
This sincere and affirming comic-drama digs into the complicated legacy of gay pop culture: the way it shapes contemporary queer life, and the possibility of healing in a cultural landscape dominated by queer tragedy. A celebration of living and loving with no holds barred, made by an all-queer company.
Scram & Scrum is a young theatre company founded by Ed Cooke, Nefyn Edwards, & Giulia Hallworth, three actor/creatives who met on East 15 Acting School's acclaimed CT course. Our mission is to make surprising work that packs a punch, celebrating the form and emotional potential of live theatre along the way.
