Jumpy

by April de Angelis

directed by Diane Robinson

A frank and very funny family drama, which questions parental anxieties and life after 50.
Hilary, just turning 50, once protested at Greenham Common and sees herself as a feminist. Now her protests tend to focus on persuading her teenage daughter to go out fully clothed. Married to Mark for far too long – they rub along in a comfortable but sterile relationship. Their daughter, Tilly, is going through the typical teenage tantrums of many girls of her age, but when Hilary and Mark discover that she has started sleeping with her boyfriend they have to decide if they want to be liberal or bring in some discipline.

Jumpy premiered at the Royal Court in October 2011 to rave reviews.
