Beautiful ThingJonathan Harvey's moving comedy drama, which deftly captures the growing pains of being 16 and in the first full flush of love, is the finale of Greenwich and Docklands International Festival 2018. Beautiful Thing takes place on and around the original south Thamesmead locations where the play (and 1996 Channel Four film) were set, marking the 50th anniversary of the first families moving in to this utopian riverside community. Featuring digital projections by NOVAK, a soundtrack by Roma Yagnik and a community chorus.
