EAST Yorkshire playwright Tom Wells's one-man musical comedy Drip drops into the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, for one night only tomorrow (May 14).

Josh Tucker stars in Script Club and Boundless Theatre's touring production in the McCarthy auditorium, directed by Jane Fallowfield.

Tucker plays 15-year-old Liam, who has just signed up for Bev Road Baths’ first ever synchronized swimming team. "It’s for his best mate, Caz, really," says Wells. "She needs to get a team together to win the annual Project Prize at school. She tries every year; she always loses. But Liam’s an optimist; he’s determined to help. There’s just one problem. Liam can’t swim."

Writer Wells and composer Matthew Robins also were the duo behind Broken Biscuits, performed at the SJT in 2016. Wells previously wrote Jumpers For Goalposts, presented in Scarborough in 2013.

Drip was premiered during Hull's year as UK City of Culture in 2017, followed by a run at the Bush Theatre, London, and is now on a British tour.

Tickets for tomorrow's 7.45pm show are on sale on 01723 370541 or at sjt.uk.com.
