Presented by Farnham Maltings
Written by Zoe Cooper
Directed by Derek Bond

Live Theatre is delighted to welcome Zoe Cooper’s (Nativities and Petrification) new show Jess and Joe Forever, a coming-of-age love story with a twist, on Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 October.
Jess and Joe Forever is 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 and directed by Derek Bond, it is a brand new piece of writing, originally commissioned by Old Vic New Voices and co-produced by the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond and Farnham Maltings.
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.
It’s a story of growing up, fitting in (or not), boys, girls, secrets, scotch eggs and even maybe love, but most of all, it’s about friendship.
Spanning several summer holidays, this unusual, yet universal coming of age tale explores rural life and what it means to belong somewhere, if you can really belong anywhere.

Zoe Cooper is a playwright and theatre practitioner based in Newcastle. She is currently studying for a PhD at Newcastle Universityand is an Artist in Residence for Newcastle City.
