The Royal Court Theatre returns to its previous West End home, the Duke of York’s Theatre, with Jumpy by April De Angelis starring Tamsin Greig
A mother, a wife, and fifty, Hilary once protested at Greenham. Now her protests tend to focus on persuading her teenage daughter to go out fully clothed.
Jumpy is a frank and funny family drama.
"Jumpy at the Duke of York's Theatre is the funniest new play the West End has seen in ages" The Telegraph
"Jumpy is a sharp-witted play about midlife crisis and parental angst" Evening Standard
"Sensational. Think Patsy from Ab Fab fused with maneater Tanya from Mamma Mia!and you get the picture, absolute comic genius" Heat
