Samuel Bailey

Published by Nick Hern Books

2 Male 2 Female

Liam and Fletch grew up together

Born on the same street

Best mates since primary


The only difference was while Fletch was getting suspended from school, Liam was studying

And now he's going to Oxford

But with Liam gone, who's going to keep Fletch out of trouble?

Sorry, You're Not a Winner explores aspiration, social mobility and getting caught between classes

It asks - if 'making it' means leaving everything you know and everyone you love behind – what's the point?

This powerful and striking play by Samuel Bailey was first produced in 2022 by Paines Plough and Theatre Royal Plymouth, in association with the University of Plymouth's School of Society and Culture, before touring nationally


An intricate and moving study of social mobility ... gripping and nuanced ... Bailey continues his development as one of the most socially engaged writers working in theatre today ~ Guardian
