Everybody's Talking About Jamie plot in a nutshell
Jamie is a sixteen-year-old 'misfit' living in council housing in Sheffield. He's scared of what lies ahead. But he knows he's got the moves and style to be the next drag queen sensation. With his wonderful caring mum and his closest friends, Jamie overcomes the bullying and bigotry, comes out of the dark closet, and takes centre stage.
Featuring brilliant earworms and addictive melodies by lead songwriter-singer of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells plus lyrics and a book by Tom MacRae, Everybody's Talking About Jamie hits a home run and has been dazzling London theatregoers and critics alike. Sweet sixteen is the perfect age for making your wildest dreams become reality.
