Following a sold-out run at the Bush Theatre last year, Sarah Gordy returned to play Kelly for a limited run of this radical and heartfelt new play.
Kelly likes dirty jokes and finding creatures washed up on the shore. Neil likes Kelly, who makes him dizzy and breathless. But Agnes, Kelly’s mum, struggles to accept their new relationship.
Jellyfish is the story of a first kiss, chips by the beach and coming of age with Down’s Syndrome in a seaside town. It’s a unique romance across uncharted waters which asks: does everyone really have the right to love as they choose?
A relaxed performance environment
All performances of Jellyfish will play in a more relaxed performance environment. There will be a more relaxed approach to making noise during the show, and coming in and out of the auditorium if you need to. If you need a break, there will be a chill-out space available in the Dorfman foyer close to the auditorium.
Please note: This production contains discussions of disability, consent, genetic screening and abortion that some people may find upsetting. A cigarette is also smoked briefly on stage. If you require further information, contact details are provided in our online Help centre
