Sewell and Gerry live in Gateshead. Theirs seems the perfect partnership. Sewell is physically strong, Gerry is small yet crafty. Neither has attended school for a long time. Both are broke. Sewell and Gerry have only one purpose in life. They each want a season ticket to see Newcastle United. And for that they need money. Lots of money. "The Season Ticket" is the story of how they go about getting it. A story of friendship, aspiration and beauty in unexpected places, it's very funny, very sad and utterly convincing.
