The Pass at Brisbane Queer Film Festival 2017
March 16, 2017 @ 8:45 pm - 10:15 pm UTC+10
Nineteen-year-old Jason (Russell Tovey from Looking) and Ade have been football prodigies since they were eight years old. The night before their first Champions League match for a famous London club, they’re sharing a hotel room in Romania.
They should be sleeping, but they’re way too excited. They do everything we imagine footballers in hotel rooms do – skip, snack, wrestle, giggle, talk about girls, fight about training, mock each other, gossip, watch a mate’s sex tape.
And then Jason kisses Ade. The impact of this ‘pass’ echoes through the next ten years of both their lives: a decade of fame and failure, secrets and lies, in a sporting world where image is everything and telling the truth – even to yourself – can be a step too far.
Originally produced by the National Theatre, Russell Tovey returns to a role in a “tour de force” performance.
