RADA STUDIOS, 16 Chennies Street, London

The focus of this play is friendship of four twentysomethings. At a more or less failed house party, they question their opinions, positions and search for some kind of a meaning.
They are driven to the edge after a visit from an unexpected guest who becomes a symbol of their aimlesness.
