Seventeen

Seventeen

by Matthew Whittet

Jess is Mike’s girlfriend. Tom is Mike’s best friend, but he’s secretly in love with Jess. Emilia is Jess’s goody-two-shoes best friend and she’s about to get drunk for the first time. Lizzy is Mike’s annoying younger sister. And Ronny, well no-one invited Ronny and no one’s quite sure why he’s there. As dawn approaches, through a fog of cheap beer, dreams are shared, insecurities aired and secrets spilled.

Funny, immature, wise and a little bit sad, Seventeen performed by a cast of septuagenarians, will turn our notions of adulthood and adolescence on their head.
