Performance Dates 22nd – 25th February 2023
Our next drama production is the contemporary comedy “Jumpy” by April De Angelis.
Best described as a frank and funny family drama, questioning parental anxieties and life after fifty, the play offers a funny but moving take on modern life. The drama centres around the character of Hilary, who once protested at Greenham Common but is now coming to terms with being middle-aged. These days, her protests tend to focus on persuading her teenage daughter to talk to her with a civil tongue in her head and on putting the fizz back into her rather stale marriage to her husband, Mark. Described as “Funny, deliciously rude and piercingly moving” by the Daily Telegraph, “Jumpy” was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in 2011, where it was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Play.
This is a Studio theatre production and will be performed in the Alexander Wilding Room at the Wyllyotts, which will be converted into an intimate studio theatre for this production.
Tickets can be obtained from the Wyllyotts Theatre Box Office.
