J’n’R is a love story loosely based on the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet but set in an airport at 4am and without the ensuing sex and stabbing. Instead we offer fast-paced dialogue, the occasional camel and the ending that Juliet deserved.
J'n'R was written in the wake of the Trump election in 2016 in an attempt to capture the shift that was happening around women's place in society and how conversations around relationships were changing. Women were articulating their experiences in very different ways and with that naturally came a reevaluation by men about how they should communicate and connect.
Setting J'n'R in an airport at 4am in the morning is about putting a relationship in an in-between world - a place where you've neither left or arrived, at a time when it's not quite night nor morning, and where anything could happen.
