Welcome to Jock Night, the ultimate after-party, set in the aftermath of Manchester’s hottest club night, Jock.
Ben is a forty-something Victoria Wood fan searching for love in a world of chemsex and jockstraps. As the nights get wilder, he’s surrounded by party boys who don’t even know who Mrs Overall is.
Kam is self-proclaimed ‘fabulous and undetectable’, hiding his struggles with addiction by being the life and soul of the party. Gym-bunny Russ is gaining Instagram followers but would rather follow Kam. Antony is 19 years old, just off the bus from Bury and thrown headfirst into a night he will never forget.
With a Grindr message from a fading porn star, Ben must decide whether to follow his heart or keep the party going.
Jock Night takes you through a year of wild nights in Manchester’s Gay Village, exploring modern gay relationships in a world fuelled by sex, drugs, and jockstraps.
Following the success of their critically acclaimed play Be More Martyn: The Boy with the Deirdre Tattoo, Hive North presents this new comedy drama, based on interviews with Manchester’s LGBTQ+ community.
