Sion Daniel Young stars as Neil in new play Jellyfish at The National Theatre

Following a sold-out run at the Bush Theatre last year, Sarah Gordyreturns to play Kelly for a limited run of this radical and heartfelt new play.

Kelly likes dirty jokes and finding creatures washed up on the shore. Neil likes Kelly, who makes him dizzy and breathless. But Agnes, Kelly’s mum, struggles to accept their new relationship.

Jellyfish is the story of a first kiss, chips by the beach and coming of age with Down’s Syndrome in a seaside town. It’s a unique romance across uncharted waters which asks: does everyone really have the right to love as they choose?

"Sion Daniel Young is excellent as Neil; with a mix of idealism and naviety, he rails aaginst the social backwardness that limites the woman he loves" Evening Standard.
