Hull Truck Theatre presents Safer.
‘If I hadn’t got out of my car that day, I would not, absolutely not be here strutting my rugby fit bear body, wearing f**k-right-off amazing dangly earrings on the streets of Hull’.
For Butterfly Boy – sitting alone in a Fiat 500 in the pouring rain – the reasons for joining a gay and inclusive rugby union team in a rugby league obsessed city didn’t seem that apparent. But once in the changing room a whole new world opens up.
Inspired by true stories Safer is a hard hitting, tender and funny exploration of the toxic side of team sports and how one gay and inclusive team decided to tackle it head on.
