Touring company Paines Plough bring their new production, Sorry, You’re Not A Winner, to Newcastle’s Northern Stage from Tuesday 5th– Saturday 9th April.

Award-winning playwright Samuel Bailey has developed a powerful story that tackles the world of social mobility and the impact of class-culture. This show challenges the audience to question what is important about life and how we define success in contemporary culture. Following the journeys of Liam and Fletch, two best friends who have taken every step of life together, audiences can watch their growth as people, and the dilemmas that risk to divide them.

They’ve had the same start on the same street and been inseparable since the beginning, but as two people with different approaches to their academic life, they have a seemingly different path ahead of them – one in Oxford and one in trouble. Watch their stories unfold on the stage; lives which reflect the realities of class division and the complexities of aspiring for success.

Sorry, You’re Not A Winner is at Northern Stage, Newcastle from Tuesday 5th– Saturday 9th April.
