Book Description

2 Jan 2014

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.

Product Description


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)

An engaging, funny and often dismaying portrait of a power-crazed modern celebrity... Donnelly's writing is wittily observant, and appreciating it requires no great love of football. (Evening Standard)

Donnelly knows his psychology and, importantly for a play about football and friendship, the details of the game; what's clever is that you don't have to be a fan yourself to understand exactly what's going on. (What's on Stage)

It is full of stereotypes instead of individuals with human aspects. I was very disappointed. The language was slangy and trite,
