A stark, tender and funny story about growing up, the pleasures of friendship, why we hold onto things and how we might start to let go. A group of classmates, determined to remember their lost friend, commit to throwing an annual party in her honour. It’s what she would have wanted.

And year after year, they stick to the tradition.

Now they’re in their twenties, and another party is about to start. The cake has arrived safely, the buffet is all set, and the aux cable is finally working – but something just doesn’t feel right…

Kit Withington’s acclaimed play is a warm-hearted homage to adolescence. The story is told using clever theatricality, energised dance and a brilliant live soundtrack.
