Winner of Pulse Festival's Suitcase Prize 2017. Jimmy is sixteen, sexually confused and stuck in Sheringham. He's screwed. Well he's not actually: that's the problem... When pop star Morrissey comes to London, Jimmy flees to the city to find his hero and himself. Rubber Ring is a laugh-out-loud coming of age comedy about a Norfolk teenager's struggle with sexual and regional identity. It comes to The Cut following critically acclaimed runs at The Pleasance Islington and The Tristan Bates Theatre in London's West End.
