Beautiful Thing
Old Mill Theatre presents
Beautiful Thing

11 Mar 2022 to 26 Mar 2022

A bittersweet comedy about young love.
Coronation Street writer Jonathan Harvey is at his insightful and hilarious best in this iconic portrait of adolescent self-discovery.
In a run-down Thamesmead council estate, Jamie is bullied at school and Ste is bullied at home. One evening, Ste seeks refuge at Jamie’s. Something exciting and beautiful begins.
At turns tough and tender, this upliftingly optimistic play captures exquisitely and joyously what it is to be sixteen, in the first flush of love and full of optimism.
Deftly combining comedy with ardent drama, the play sings, with characters that abound with attitude, energy, frankness and humour.
A gloriously nostalgic trip back to the early nineties, bright with sensitivity, pathos and wit, it has a summery soundtrack of beautiful Mama Cass songs.
This endearing play is directed by award-winning director Barry Park.
