Beautiful Thing at the Theatre Royal

We'll go for the guaranteed £12 Standby tickets and pop along for a debrief and drinks in Carluccios, Delice or similar afterwards!

Beautiful Thing

'Celebrating its twentieth anniversary year, and direct from the West End, the award winning Beautiful Thing by Jonathan Harvey comes to Brighton for one week only. This uplifting and heart warming new production is directed by Nikolai Foster, designed by Colin Richmond and stars Suranne Jones as Sandra.

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.

Suranne Jones will star as Sandra, Jamie’s mother. Suranne is best known for her role as Karen McDonald in Coronation Street and DC Rachel Bailey in Scott & Bailey. Her other television roles include the human Tardis in Dr Who, A Touch of Cloth, and The Secret of Crickley Hall. Her stage credits include Top Girls, Blythe Spirit and A Few Good Men.

Jonathan Harvey is a regular writer on Coronation Street, and wrote hit TV series Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and Beautiful People. His stage work includes Canary, Corrie! and Closer to Heaven, as well as the best-selling 2012 novel All She Wants.'

    Very interesting and enjoyable night. One can only imagine (now) how edgy this play would have felt when it debuted back in 1993, which shows how far the landscape of understanding and acceptability has progressed since then. It was also lovely to catch up with everybody for the drinks afterwards. Look forward to seeing you all again soon.

    Interesting play, the highlight was the after-show drinks. Love having a chat and a giggle over wine. Thank you to everyone present.

    I've just realised it's Father's Day on 16th June so will need to be at my parents all weekend, so unfortunately can't make the play now I'm afraid.
