Beautiful Thing

“Jamie lives with his mum Sandra, who dreams of getting out of the estate. Her boyfriend Tony dreams of what will happen next in Hollyoaks. Next-door is Ste who dreams of football and a life free from bruises and fighting. Leah, who lives the other way, dreams of Mama Cass. The biggest question is what does Jamie dream about? Or more importantly who? Jonathan Harvey’s magical and heart warming play is brought to life by a new Teesside company, less is MORE productions.”
Set originally in the council estates of Thamesmead, South London, Jonathan Harvey’s iconic ‘gay’ play is relocating to the estates of Billingham by a new professional company less is MORE. Part of Middlesbrough’s Supergay celebrations, less is MORE is collaborating with local teenagers to create a truly memorable performance of this tender play. For a limited time only, this is a chance to see local trained actors working together with young actors who have also grown up in and around the Tees Valley, perform a hugely loved and well received piece of theatre.
