Apr 2015 - Sam Jackson - Beautiful Thing

2 April 2015 by Pure Radio

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.
