EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE
Inspired by true events and based on the acclaimed musical by Jonathan Butterell, Tom MacRae and Dan Gillespie Sells, EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE follows Jamie New (Max Harwood), a teenager from Sheffield, who dreams of life on stage. While his classmates plan their livelihoods after they leave school, Jamie contemplates revealing his secret career ambition to become a fierce and proud drag queen. His best friend Pritti (Lauren Patel) and his loving mum (Sarah Lancashire, HAPPY VALLEY) shower him with endless support, while local drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle (Oscar® nominee Richard E. Grant, CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?) mentors him toward his debut stage performance. But Jamie also has to contend with an unsupportive father (Ralph Ineson, CHERNOBYL, THE GREEN KNIGHT, THE WITCH), an uninspired career advisor (Sharon Horgan, CATASTROPHE) and some ignorant school kids who attempt to rain on his sensational parade. In rousing and colorful musical numbers, Jamie and his community inspire one another to overcome prejudice, be more accepting an step out of the darkness into the spotlight.
