JAM

 Jam  

by Matt Parvin

They said I was violent. You’re the ‘victim’ – what do you think?

Ten years ago, Bella Soroush’s life was ruined by one of her pupils – Kane McCarthy. She has gradually rebuilt things – new school, new town, new friends – and finally feels at home in the depths of the countryside.

Now Kane is back in her classroom, armed with relics of the past and demanding an apology.

As the truths they've clung to begin to collapse, teacher and pupil are forced to confront their prejudices and the shared history that has bound them together.

Set over a single evening, Jam is a relentless, incendiary new drama that interrogates social fault-lines in Britain today, and the tension between truth and justice.

TAUT, CRUELLY FUNNY AND CRAMMED WITH QUIRKY DETAIL

Tommo Fowler’s sweatily intense production is performed with thrilling verve and ferocity by Jasmine Hyde and Harry Melling.

Sam Marlowe, The Times   

TENSE CLASSROOM DRAMA

Tommo Fowler’s production ... is excellently acted

INCREDIBLY TOUGH TO WATCH FROM A METROPOLITAN, SOCIALLY LIBERAL PERSPECTIVE

Harry Melling delivers an astonishing performance [...] and Jasmine Hyde’s Bella matches each moment, her performance a triumph

IMPRESSIVELY CHILLING ... A MUST SEE ​★★★★★

Subtle use of sound and lighting tighten an already iron grip on the atmosphere, building the twist into a perfectly orchestrated stomach-dropping surprise

AN EXPLOSIVE PIECE OF NEW WRITING ★★★★

Harry Melling is remarkable [...] Equally powerful is Jasmine Hyde
