BEAUTIFUL THING Available now from Digital Theatre
You can view Jonathan Harvey’s play, Beautiful Thing, recorded live during its acclaimed West End run at the Arts Theatre in May 2013.
Beautiful Thing is available to watch online from the Digital Theatre channel for TalkTalk TV Plus YouView customers, with Samsung Smart TV, or through the Digital Theatre app for iPhone, iPad and iPad touch.
Directed by Nikolai Foster and with designs by Colin Richmond, the production stars Suranne Jones, Zaraah Abrahams and Oliver Farnworth, with Jake Davies and Danny-Boy Hatchard as Jamie and Ste.
Beautiful Thing is a magnificent urban love story between two young men set on an inner city housing estate. 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 by their loud-mouthed next door neighbour Leah. The play finely depicts what it is to be sixteen, in the first blossom of love, and full of optimism.
Digital Theatre works with the UK’s leading theatre companies to capture the best of British theatre genuinely on screen, and makes productions accessible in High Definition.
Celebrating its twentieth anniversary year, Beautiful Thing also travelled to Liverpool Playhouse and West Yorkshire Playhouse, completing its national tour at the Theatre Royal, Brighton. Beautiful Thing was produced in the West End and on tour by Tom O’Connell for QNQ Ltd.
