Beautiful Thing

This iconic, optimistic love story about teenage boys Jamie and Ste is given a homecoming in this unique outdoor production of Jonathan Harvey’s well-loved play.

The finale of GDIF 2018, Beautiful Thing will take place on and around the original south Thamesmead locations where the play (and 1996 Channel Four film) were set, marking the 50th anniversary of the first families moving in to this utopian riverside community.

The new dance-theatre production, capturing the urban realism and fairytale fantasy of Harvey’s script, will feature stunning digital projections by NOVAK, new music by Roma Yagnik, performance by Lord Hicks and a community chorus. It is co-directed by GDIF Artistic Director Bradley Hemmings and choreographer Robby Graham (Angels in America).
