The Drummer and The Keeper

The Drummer and The Keeper

Gabriel is a chaotic young rock drummer desperate to hide his recent Bipolar diagnosis from his increasingly exasperated band mates. At the therapeutic mixed-ability football game he’s obliged to attend as part of his treatment Gabriel is spectacularly upended by goalkeeper Christopher, an institutionalised 17-year-old with Aspergers Syndrome. Having taken violent revenge, Gabriel faces expulsion – and the prospect of being sectioned - unless he “makes friends” with Christopher.  

When the isolated and socially-inept young goalkeeper takes this grudging offer of friendship literally, Gabriel finds his footsteps dogged and secrets threatened by an embarrassingly eager and dangerously tactless new disciple.
