Description

Hilary once protested at Greenham Common. Nowadays, her protests tend to focus on persuading her contemptuous teenage daughter to fully clothe herself when she goes out. A marriage in ruins and a career on the rocks only add to the perils of life for a middle-aged mum in Walthamstow. Where did it all go wrong?

This frank and very funny family drama questions parental anxieties and explores the life, the worries, the strength, and the vulnerability of the post-feminist urban woman. Jumpy premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2011 to rave reviews and subsequently transferred to the West End. We are proud to give this play its Tyneside premiere.
