A glorious urban love story set on a London housing estate telling 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, along with Jamie's mum, Sandra (the local barmaid) and her neo-hippy boyfriend, Tony. Jonathan Harvey (Gimme, Gimme, Gimme; Coronation Street) combines comedy with drama in his critically acclaimed award-winning play. Beautiful Thing truly captures what it is to be a teenager and to fall in love.
