Stand by Me in 1986, The Breakfast Club in 1995, Dazed and Confused in 1993, and, more recently, Boyhood in 2014.
Coming of age films are forever popular and tonight they will be joined by Jess and Joe Forever.
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, this brand new play by Zoe Cooper, presented by Farnham Maltings in association with Orange Tree Theatre, is an unusual coming of age tale that explores rural life and what it means to belong somewhere, if you can really belong anywhere. It is a layered and thoughtful play about finding your place in the world when you only know a small corner of it.
