About the play

Finding one true soulmate is fortunate.
Finding two, life becomes complicated.

Meet husband and wife, Simon and Carey - the perfect couple. He has some news to share, but she gets in first with a jar. The swearing has to stop. They're having a baby!

When Carey enlists the help of a new musician friend to throw a birthday concert for her husband we discover life-changing secrets of their past.

Recently released as a film, New Perspectives presents the UK premiere of this award-winning bittersweet comedy offering audiences a warm embrace, full of heartbreak, humour and songs.


Spring tour dates will be available soon.

The Swearing Jar is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
