Beautiful Thing is a uplifting and heart-warming new production directed by Nikolai Foster, designed by Colin Richmond and stars Suranne Jones.
Beautiful Thing is a glorious urban love story between two young men coming to grips with their sexuality and the effect it has on the people in their lives. It tells the story of teenager Jamie’s relationship with classmate and neighbour Ste. Together the two boys find comedy, warmth and the music of Mama Cass through their loud-mouthed next door neighbour Leah. The play exquisitely depicts what it is to be sixteen, in the first flush of love, and full of optimism. Suranne Jones will star as Sandra, Jamie’s mother. Suranne is best known for her role as Karen McDonald in Coronation Street and DC Rachel Bailey in Scott & Bailey. Her other television roles include the human Tardis in Dr Who, A Touch of Cloth, and The Secret of Crickley Hall. Her stage credits include Top Girls, Blythe Spirit and A Few Good Men. She has won numerous awards for her television roles.
