Beautiful Thing

by Jonathan Harvey
Opening Night 04 August 2005
Director: Jeffrey Vaughan

Writer Jonathan Harvey describes his play as an urban fairytale. Its a story of sexual awakening, set in the close-knit, working class community of the Thamesmead Estate, south-east London.

Sandra works as manager of a local pub, her teenage son, Jamie is the kind of student who hates athletics and is victimized by his peers. Jamies neighbour at Thamesmead, Ste, is a popular jock at the school, but Ste has his own problems at home. One night, Ste seeks refuge at Jamies flat, where the two boys share a bed, and the foundation for first love is set.
