The story follows Jamie, an introvert, troubled teen whose dislike of football is reason enough for his classmates to bully him at every opportunity. Living with is pre-occupied single mum, Sandra, Jamie finds himself infatuated with his next door neighbour and classmate Ste. Ste, who is living with his drug-dealing brother and abusive, alcoholic father in the flat next door, is one night beaten so badly that Sandra takes pity and lets him sleep over. In the absence of a third bed, Ste has to make do with sleeping 'top-to-toe' with Jamie. Much to his delight, Jamie is able to provide Ste with the comfort and reassurance he craves and also a little massage with some peppermint foot lotion . . . The boys’ relationship is helped along by Leah, a sassy, Mama Cass-obsessed neighbour and Sandra’s dippy neo-hippy lover, Tony, as they discover themselves, each other and a Beautiful Thing. Jonathan Harvey deftly combines comedy with ardent drama in his critically acclaimed award winning play. Beautiful Thing truly captures what it is to be sixteen and in the first full flush of love.

Dee, a successful TV writer, arrives at the flat of a man named Stone, having accepted an invitation to discuss a script his 'wife' has written. She is rather surprised when Detective Inspector Hallet, with whom she is having an affair, also arrives, apparently to investigate a matter concerning Stone's 'son' and his involvement with a drugs ring. But where are his wife and son? After many twists and turns, Stone's intentions become clear as he slowly reveals the precise nature of the trio's relationship. It seems that, in their own way, all three are very much concerned with the business of murder, and the play culminates in another perpetration of the crime.
