DRINKS, as the title suggests, invites the audience to Laura and Dave’s housewarming drinks, and is set in a real Victorian house. Laura and Dave have just become homeowners and want to celebrate getting their foot on the property ladder – even if it is a dump. Now they have a house they should classify as having ‘made it’, surely.
But as the night progresses we see our central couple realise a few uncomfortable truths about what it means to grow up, accept change and embrace new beginnings. Shit got real!
DRINKS is an immersive, site-specific, and interactive theatre experience that discusses how friendships and relationships change as adult life takes over. With this play we question whether to cherish and value old ties or to cut and run.
