Jess and Joe Forever is a funny, surprising and poignant play about teenage friendship, growing up and the frictions that still exist between urban and rural communities. Jess is a girl from a big city who is holidaying in Joe's seaside town. They are both outsiders who gradually form a friendship over several summers, which changes both of them, forever. 

A coming of age tale full of soil, secrets and scotch eggs.

Zoe Cooper received the Most Promising Playwright Award at the Off West End Awards (2016) and was also longlisted for the Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright Award

The Stage

“Quirky and charming”
“Be prepared to laugh, cry and, like a carving of names surrounded by a heart on a tree – be permanently affected by this seemingly simple story of friendship.”
“Its upbeat sweetness will pierce your heart.”
The Scarborough News


“A small play with a big heart, a romantic comedy that’s genuinely funny but also unexpectedly powerful”
