- Beautiful Thing
When I was your age we made our own fun.
"Beautiful Thing is a glorious urban love story between two young men coming to grips with their sexuality and the effect it has on the people in their lives. It tells 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. The play exquisitely depicts what it is to be sixteen, in the first flush of love, and full of optimism."
Written by British playwright Jonathan Harvey, Beautiful Thing was released as a film by Channel 4 in 1996.
