Matt Parvin

PaperBack (23 May 2017)

Ten years ago, Bella Soroush’s life was ruined by one of her pupils – Kane McCarthy. She has gradually rebuilt things – new school, new town, new friends – and finally feels at home in the depths of the countryside. Now Kane is back in her classroom, armed with relics of the past and claiming to want forgiveness. As the truths they've clung to begin to collapse, teacher and pupil are forced to confront their prejudices and the shared history that has bound them together.

'A decade after their conflict at a rural comprehensive, Kane, now 23, appears in Bella’s new classroom, at a new school, where she’s done well for herself – having left the troublesome boy whose pranks and racially inflected taunting made her life miserable. A dogged fight to the truth of those events, Matt Parvin’s play is about how different kinds of authority, privilege, disadvantage and vulnerability intersect and shape us... Jam leaves you turning its events over and over long after its characters seem to find equilibrium.'
