Lion Theatre Company presents
Written by Ella Hickson
Directed by Hetty Hodgson
It’s a matter of days before Benny, Mack, Timp and Cam have to move out of their student flat. The boys find mess piling up around them as they step out into an unwelcoming world. They start to wonder if there's any point in getting older. Before that though, there's going to be one hell of a party. It's hot. There'll be girls. Predict a riot.
Simultaneously funny, tragic and extremely real, the play offers a genuine and painful view of the challenges faced by those who refuse to grow up.

Having rejuvenated the fortunes of a crumbling town, eminent doctor Tamsin Stockmann expects to be hailed as its saviour once again when she exposes a major public health risk. But the town’s prosperity hangs in the balance and opposition grows. Will she will lauded as hero of the hour or will Dr. Stockmann be declared an enemy of the people?
