SORRY, YOU’RE NOT A WINNER

by Samuel Bailey

Liam and Fletch grew up together. Born on the same street. Best mates since primary. Inseparable. The only difference was while Fletch was getting suspended from school, Liam was studying. And now he’s going to Oxford. But with Liam gone, who’s going to keep Fletch out of trouble? 

A striking new play from Samuel Bailey, whose debut play Shook won him the 2019 Papatango Prize and Times Breakthrough Award in 2021, Sorry, You’re Not A Winner is a play about aspiration, social mobility and getting caught between class. It asks; if ‘making it’ means leaving everything you know and everyone you love behind – what’s the point?

A Paines Plough and Theatre Royal Plymouth production in association with University of Plymouth, School of Society and Culture
