John and Jen

 

7th-17th May 2014

John and Jen ran from 7th-17th May 2014 at The Back Room of The Star Inn, Guildford.

John & Jen, the acclaimed and moving American musical, was performed at Guildford Fringe Theatre Company as the first show of 2014.

John & Jen is a two-hander set in the USA and follows the funny, tender and moving relationship between a brother and a sister, and a mother and a son. Written by Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald, the show opened Off-Broadway in 1995 to rave reviews.

In something of a coup for local drama, two acclaimed actors joined Guildford Fringe Theatre Company to take on the title roles.

John was played by Martin Neely, whose previous work has included Les Miserables (West End) and Mary Poppins (UK Tour), while Jessica Sherman, whose previous work includes Lend Me A Tenor (Vienna) and Batman Live (World Arena Tour), played the role of Jen.
