Beautful Thing - A Gay Love Story - Curve Theatre - May 2015
Nikolai Foster’s celebrated anniversary production of Beautiful Thing returns to the stage with a brand new cast led by multi-award-winning actress Charlie Brooks (Janine Butcher in EastEnders) and featuring Thomas Law (The World’s End; EastEnders); Sam Jackson (Skins; Drifters); Gerard McCarthy (The Fall; Hollyoaks) and introducing Vanessa Babirye (Our Girl).

Writer Jonathan Harvey (Coronation Street; Gimme, Gimme, Gimme; Beautiful People) combines comedy with ardent drama in his critically acclaimed award-winning play that inspired the 1996 cult film.

Set during a heat wave on a rundown council estate, the story follows Jamie, a troubled teen whose dislike of football is reason enough for his classmates to bully him at every opportunity. Living with his single mum, Sandra, he finds himself infatuated with his next door neighbour and classmate, Ste.

Ste, who is living with his 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.
