Synopsis

Jane Turner (Kath & Kim) takes centre stage alongside musical theatre favourite Marina Prior and Brenna Harding (Puberty Blues) in this hilarious West End hit – a domestic comedy of frazzled hopes and parental anxiety.

Hitting mid-life isn’t the worst of it for Hilary. Nor is the feeling that life has passed her by, that her marriage is failing, and that her job is going nowhere. Oh no, the worst of it is her 15-year-old daughter Tilly; wayward, precocious and contrary, who insists on grabbing every freedom that passing time has denied her mother.

Jumpy is a funny and frank family drama that takes aim at the contemporary mother-daughter relationship with uncanny precision.
