"Fills you with heartache and urges your humanity and compassion"


Meet Daniel Valentine. He’s a strange boy. It’s Mother’s Day and he has returned to his family home to celebrate.

He’s here to tell you his story. A story of a domineering mother, church trips, youth club discos and a transformative trip to the theatre to see a certain Yorkshire songstress that ultimately changes everything…

But do all stories have a happy ending?

Fresh from a five star, award-winning run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, our co-production with KETCHUP productions and Richard Jordan Productions, Jesus, Jane, Mother & Me, is a twisted coming-of-age story blending pitch black humour and heartache by acclaimed playwright Philip Stokes (Heroin(e) for Breakfast) that explores family dynamics, who our idols are and just how hard life can be when you’re a little bit different.
