After the hugely popular sell-out run earlier this year, Ryde Boy, a new gig-theatre play by Joe Plumb, is back at Department.

I’m a ‘Ryde Boy’.

Football weekenders

Followed by drunken benders

As kids we’d hang out down the railway tracks

Sipping on bottles of Frosty Jacks

Every year, a group of lads gather in the King Lud pub to remember their friend Danny. They have all drifted apart since his death and it is unlikely they will meet like this again.

Directed by Holly Downer and written by Joe Plumb

This play deals with a number of adult themes. Age recommendation 16+
