Writer Simon Stephens talks to Dave Stearn on Pure Drive about writing the stage play of the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, ahead of the play coming back to the Lowry 17th – 21st Nov 2105
Beautiful Thing is a story of young love, between two men on a rundown council estate.
Living with his single mum, Jamie finds himself infatuated with his next door neighbour and classmate, Ste. One night, Ste is beaten up so badly by his father, Jamie’s mother takes him in. From there, their romance begins.
It will be at The Lowry this month. Jamie will be played by Sam Jackson – as seen on Channel 4’s Skins and Drifters.
Sam told Under the Rainbow that social attitudes have changed massively towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people – since the play premiered in 1993.
Still Ill is a tragic love story between the jumped up pantry boy and the boy with the thorn in his side.
It’s set in a world of violence between Manchester and Northern Ireland.
The play will be on at The Lowry and at Oldham Library later this month.
Under the Rainbow has been speaking to the writer, Billy Cowen.
