Set during a heat wave on a rundown Thamesmead council estate, Beautiful Thing is an urban love story full of characters that abound with attitude, energy, frankness and humour. The story follows Jamie, an introvert, troubled teen whose dislike of football is reason enough for his classmates to bully him at every opportunity. Living with his pre-occupied single mum, Sandra, Jamie finds himself infatuated with his next door neighbour and classmate Ste. Ste, who is living with his abusive, alcoholic father in the flat next door, is one night beaten so badly that Sandra takes pity and lets him sleep over. In the absence of a third bed, Ste has to make do with sleeping 'top-to-toe' with Jamie. Much to his delight, Jamie is able to provide Ste with the comfort and reassurance he craves and also a little massage with some peppermint foot lotion.
The boys' relationship is helped along by Leah, a sassy, Mama Cass-obsessed neighbour and Sandra's dippy neo-hippy lover, Tony, as they discover themselves, each other and a Beautiful Thing.
Jonathan Harvey deftly combines comedy with ardent drama in his critically acclaimed award winning play, and truly captures what it is to be sixteen and in the first full flush of love.
In 2013 the play is twenty years old and will be celebrating its anniversary with a return to London for the first time in over 8 years. Starring Suranne Jones as Sandra, Zaraah Abrahams as Leah, Oliver Farnworth as Tony and introducing Jake Davies as Jamie and Danny-Boy Hatchard as Ste.
A brand new production at the Arts Theatre in the West End from 13 April -- 25 May, with a press night on Wednesday 17 April, followed by a short UK tour visiting Liverpool, Leeds and Brighton. Directed by Nikolai Foster, Designed by Colin Richmond, casting by Kay Magson CDG, Lighting by David Plater, Sound by George Dennis and produced by Tom O'Connell for QNQ Ltd.
Music for this trailer is produced by James Nicholson - with video production by Adam Newland & Jack Macdonald for QNQ Ltd.
