In its measured pace, Anja Hilling‚s poetic play ponders the world through the eyes of four young people of the verge of adulthood. Against Pippa Murphy’s evocative soundscape, the young cast - most of them making their professional debuts here - have the relaxed connection of lifelong friends.

Opening with an ominously innocent joy we know can never last, their lives are irreversibly changed by the death of one of their number.
