Jess & Joe Forever

Date: 15 Feb 2019

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, UK playwright Zoe Cooper’s 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.

Nyx Calder and Julia Robertson feature in this Sydney premiere directed by Shaun Rennie and designed by Isabel Hudson.
