Meet Jess and Joe. They want to tell you their story. Joe is Norfolk born and bred and wears wellies. Jess holidays there with her au pair and is slightly too tubby for her summer dresses. They are miles apart even when they stand next to each other. This is a story of growing up, fitting in (or not), boys, girls, secrets, scotch eggs and maybe even love, but most of all, it’s about friendship.

Spanning several summer holidays, Jess and Joe Forever is an unusual coming of age tale that explores rural life and what it means to belong somewhere, if you can really belong anywhere.

A layered and thoughtful play about finding your place in the world when you only know a small corner of it.

Written by Zoe Cooper (Nativities at Live Theatre Newcastle and Man on the Moon for New Writing North/Sage)

Jess and Joe Forever was commissioned by Old Vic New Voices.
