The Awkward Years

The Awkward Years

by Matthew Bulgo

Lily's like a lot of other 20-somethings - working a dead-end job, stuck in a cycle of one-night stands and not where they expected to be at the age of 27. Her friends all feel like their lives are falling apart…except Lily's really is. Can she stop the rot before she crumbles away to nothing?

The Awkward Years will fuse a muscular text with frenetic movement and an evocative sound and lighting design to produce a breakneck-speed show about grief, hope and staying alive.
