Beautiful Thingby Jonathan HarveyJamie and Ste (short for Steve) are teenage neighbors in a working-class housing project in London. Jamie is bookish and shy while Ste is more athletic. Neither one has an ideal home life: Jamies mother Sandra is bitter over her financial situation and her romantic life, but shes willing to settle for a bloke named Tony and cover up her disappointment with scathing humor; Stes father and brother abuse him in the form of escalating domestic squabbles and actual beatings. After one such fight, Ste asks Sandra if he can stay at her house and she lets him and Jamie bunk together.As their friendship grows, Jamie begins to realize he has stronger feelings for Ste, and one night, after Ste suffers a particularly bad beating, the two boys decide to experiment together. Both realizing theyre gay, Ste and Jamie begin a tentative relationship. Soon, Sandra hears the rumor that her sons gay, and knowing that hes been having trouble in school, she confronts him and he admits the truth.Ste and Jamies friend, Leah, is also in on the secret and shes supportive of them, probably because of her own outsider status as a Mama Cass worshipper. The play ends with the two boys feeling less alone in the world than before; they have each other, and even the bickering Sandra and Leah call a truce and accompany the boys in a slow dance for all their neighbors to see.While there is no cost for you to register for our P3 Theatre Roulette programming, there are still costs incurred by P3 Theatre Company to produce this series.
