Shvorne Marks stars in Beautiful Thing at Theatre Royal Stratford East.

Teenage boys Ste and Jamie are neighbours on a South London estate. Jamie is more knowledgeable about The Sound of Music than football, while classmate Ste never misses a sports day. Both are being bullied, Jamie at school and Ste at home by his violent father and brother. One night, when things get too much, Ste seeks refuge in Jamie’s flat and, sharing a bed, the boys strike up a new relationship. Together they come to terms with their sexuality and explore their feelings alongside their Mama Cass loving, rebellious friend Leah and with the much-needed emotional support of Jamie’s lioness mother, Sandra.

Beautiful Thing opens for previews on September 8th and runs at Stratford until October 7th before touring to Leeds Playhouse (18th – 28th Oct) and HOME Manchester (31st Oct – Nov 11th) – tickets can be purchased here
