About the Book

In a high-end hotel room, rising football stars Jason and Ade are living the dream. Goals, girls and glory. Tomorrow they make their first-team debut. But the game starts before you've even walked out the tunnel.

Twelve years. Three hotel rooms. One last gamble.

An agile new story about sex, fame and how much you're willing to lose in order to win, The Pass premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in January 2014.

  • John Donnelly

    John Donnelly's plays include Bone (Royal Court Theatre), Corporate Rock (Nabokov/Latitude Festival), Conversation #1 (The Factory/V&A/Latitude Festival/SGP), Songs of Grace and Redemption (Liminal Theatre/Theatre 503), Encourage the Others (Almeida Lab), Burning Bird (Synergy/Unicorn Theatre), a version of Chekhov's The Seagull (Headlong), The Knowledge (Bush) and, most recently, The Pass (Royal Court Theatre).

“Within moments of the kick off of John Donnelly's play I was gripped, and I remained gripped until the final whistle.”
- Telegraph
“John Donnelly's acerbically witty and horribly gripping new play tackles the topical subject of the homophobia that seems to be entrenched in the culture of football.”
- Independent
