Matt Parvin’s Jam premieres at the Finborough Theatre on 23 May.
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 claiming to want forgiveness. 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. It gets its world premiere in a four-week season at the Finborough Theatre.
Jam is Matt Parvin’s debut full length play. It is directed by Tommo Fowler and stars Harry Melling as Kane and Jasmine Hyde as Bella.
Jam plays the Finborough Theatre on 23 May – 17 June. For more information and to book tickets, please visit the website.
