Front Room Productions proudly presents a brand new one-woman show HURRY UP, JESS: coming soon to a bedroom near you!
Liv and Jess are best friends. They’ve been best friends for seventeen years, eight months, three weeks, and two days – or as long as they can remember. Join Liv as she prepares to go to a house party with Jess. Experience the trials and tribulations of finding the perfect dress, making an entrance, waiting for that all-important text, and traumatic driving lessons.
One more thing, just don’t tell Liv – Jess will never arrive.
HURRY UP, JESS is no ordinary play. The show will be performed in a series of bedrooms throughout Yorkshire and the North West. Sounds crazy, right? But HURRY UP, JESS could be taking place just around the corner, down the street, or even right next-door to where you live. Whether theatre is your cup of tea or not, come and experience something entirely new as we invite you on an intimate and interactive jaunt around Liv’s bedroom and childhood memories. Somewhere between theatre and real life, during this heartwarming tale about friendship, loyalty, and coming to terms with loss, you won’t just watch a show; you’ll live it.
“Olivia’s sparkling performance captures the shimmering confusion of youth … [she] sustains the next hour or so with a monologue reminiscent of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads … It’s a heartfelt and energetic performance with light and shade covering the full range from comedy to pathos.” (Culture Vulture of Hurry Up, Jess)
“Delightful and imaginative” (The Reviews Hub of A Christmas Carol, ****1/2)
