‘Juniper and Jules’ brings authentic queer relationships to the stage

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

‘Juniper and Jules’ is a love story about queer relationships and will be performed at London’s Vault Festival from 23 – 27 January.

Written by Stephanie Martin (Joy for Theatre Royal Stratford East, Alkaline at the Park Theatre), directed by Bethany Pitts (Fuck You Pay Me, Spine) and performed by Gabriella Schmidt and Stella Taylor, the play is about making new rules.

Described as a play about how we lust, love, laugh, bicker and care for each other, ‘Juniper and Jules’ will explore what it means to be a queer woman in today’s society.

While Juniper may have always liked girls, Jules didn’t realise she could like girls because no-one ever told her it was an option. Meeting each other, the pair begins to question the so-called rules of a relationship and how they might be able to make their very own rules that work for them.

‘Juniper and Jules’ is a contemporary story about relationships, queer identities, and how we choose to love,” said the creative team behind the play.

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.”

Following a sold-out run at Theatre 503, ‘Juniper and Jules’ will be performed at Vault Festival for 6 performances only (23 – 27 January). A UK tour is due to take place later in the year.

‘Juniper and Jules’ is produced by Clamour Theatre and is kindly supported by De Trut Fond.

You can buy tickets to ‘Juniper and Jules’, performed at The Pit in Waterloo (SE1 7NN), via the Vault Festival website. Alternatively, you can call 0208 050 9241.
