Beautiful Thing is a gentle and hugely optimistic play. Teenagers Ste and
Jamie are next door neighbours on the Thamesmead Estate in South
London: Jamie is being bullied at school, and Ste is being bullied at home. When it all gets too much
Ste seeks refuge at Jamie’s and their awkward but joyous relationship develops. Underscored by a
Mama Cass soundtrack, this play perfectly captures the wonder of first love. Strong language –
suitable for ages 12+.
