A darkly comic debut play about confession and the gravity of young love.
Ramona is fifteen, hates bananas, and she’s totally cool. Honestly. She’s completely cool.
It’s 1998, and Ramona, of Englandshire, is on a wet, midge-riddled geography field trip, deep in the Scottish Highlands. There she meets Jim, a local laddie obsessed with hermit crabs, rock erosion and spider plants.
When Ramona falls for Jim’s awkward charm, she gets caught in a scandal that will haunt her for years to come.
Sophie Wu’s Ramona Tells Jim was commissioned by and first performed at the Bush Theatre, London, in September 2017.
