This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

Based on Jonathan Harvey’s seminal play (who also wrote the screenplay), Beautiful thing is a joyful, beloved queer classic that portrays its working-class LGBT characters with remarkable sensitivity and nuance.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, this tender love story is set during one hot summer on a South-East London housing estate. Jamie, a relatively unpopular lad who wags school to avoid football, lives next door to Ste, a more popular and athletic teen who has to endure endless bullying and beatings from his hardened father and unsympathetic brother. In this bleak environment however the two boys find each other and begin to fall in love.
