''Funny and touching''
-Mark Strong, Actor
“Funny and touching and fearlessly truthful, ‘Stud’ is more than timely, it’s what this world – wrestling as we are with masculinity in crisis – is crying out for.” - Rikki Beadle Blair
Tom’s sixteen. His family home is falling apart. His mum has left and his depressed Dad can’t pay the bills. The only light in Tom’s life is football: He lives it and breathes it. Going pro is Tom’s chance to make life better, for everyone…. But Tom has a secret, one that could cost him his career. We follow Tom as he weighs his dreams against each other because in professional football, you can’t have both. Stud is a funny, defiant, inspiring piece that explores gender, ambition and what it takes to make dreams come true.
