Beautiful Thing May 11th, ’13

london west end

a sweet play about coming of age and coming to grips with sexuality, with parents and with life itself sad and happy, sweet and rough, the play draws you in and thanks to the intimate theatre makes you part of it all. The cast – Suranne Jones as overworked mother, newcomers as Jamie and Ste and to my huge surprise Oliver Farnworth (of Holding the Man) as young lover Tony – was excellent. And that Oliver seemed to recognise us at the stagedoor and signed our programs – it was the icing on the cake.
