Background


Following a sold-out run at the Bush Theatre last year, Sarah Gordy returns to play Kelly for a limited run of this radical and heartfelt new play.

Synopsis


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?
