Juniper and Jules - Vault Festival

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOLLOWING a sold out run at Theatre 503, Clamour Theatre are presenting Juniper and Jules at the Vault Festival. A love story about queer relationships, non-monogamy and how we choose to love, it runs from January 23 to January 27, 2019.

Juniper and Jules is written by Stephanie Martin (Joy for Theatre Royal Stratford East, Alkaline at the Park Theatre), directed by Bethany Pitts (F**k You Pay Me, Spine) and performed by Gabriella Schmidt and Stella Taylor.

You’re not better than me because you’re gay-er.

Juniper has liked girls, (only girls), for as long as she can remember. Jules didn’t realise she could like girls because no-one ever told her it was an option.

Jules isn’t naturally monogamous, she doesn’t think. She’s always liked to be different. She wants to make new rules. Juniper is more interested in peace and quiet and happiness (and making sure the washing-up gets done by bedtime).

Juniper and Jules is a play about identities and new possibilities; about making new rules; about how we lust, love, laugh, bicker and care for each other. It explores bisexuality and polyamory and what it means to be a queer woman.

The creative team said: “Juniper and Jules is a contemporary story about relationships, queer identities, and how we choose to love. We want people to leave feeling represented, and if their relationships don’t exist in the borders of today’s hetero-normative society, they aren’t alone, they are valid. Our team is queer female, which is vital to the authenticity of the play; we strongly believe voices from marginalised communities should be able to tell their own stories.”
