For this week’s Current Event, I am talking about the EastEnders stars cast in tour of UK’s biggest gay play. This story is about two teenagers who names are Jamie and Ste who find love in London. If you all remember the movie Beautiful Thing, if not go look up and watch it. The movie is really good but anyway a tour of Beautiful Thing will return with a play in 2015 in conjunction with the new movie.
This urban love story of these two London teens realize their sexuality together and at the same time not let people find out. The movie was written in the early 1900s and then the movie was turned into a film in 1996. In so this new movie will remain as always first love story and an also coming out teenager.
In the new film, the leading multi award winning actress who is Charlie Brooks, or best known as Janine Butcher in the EastEnders and now will be playing the role as Sandra. She will be joined by Thomas Law who will be playing Peter Beale in the EastEnders, in Ste and Sam Jackson, from Skins and Drifters as Jamie.
The Director Nikolai said this quote and also how happy she is “Beautiful Thing empowers everybody who sees it. I’m honored to be revisiting Jonathan’s exceptional play once again, this time bringing it to towns and cities across the UK, where I know it will make a positive difference too many lives.”
For myself I cannot wait until the new film start even though it will not be down here but instead in London. But I am still happy that it will be a tour for this and I can’t wait until 2015 come around so I can look at how London will change just by this film.
