Four party-animal best friends have found themselves stagnating in their small town after graduating from university. Frankie and Tweak are two layabouts whose life plans don’t extend further than their search for the next beer or packet of crisps. Frankie’s extroversion and lackadaisical attitude seem to have no bounds, but Tweak is starting to feel like he wants to do more with his life. Sky is vivacious, funny and on-the-ball (Most of the time). She’s got plans to travel the world and find herself (and maybe a party) and wants Frankie to come, but even getting him to go to the corner shop is impossible. Meanwhile, flippant and deadpan Elliehas failed university four times, very intelligent, but cushioned by her wealthy family and totally unable to decide what to do with her life. However, after a couple of secrets, a hasty purchase and an ill-advised shag (Not necessarily in that order) the very close group may not ever be the same again… although perhaps that’s for the best.
“A play about booze, rizlas, and getting your shit together.”
Ever felt like you’re going nowhere?
Worrying if you took the right degree?
Disillusioned with your life?
Need a beer?
