It’s the middle of the night and Peebs and Epi are the only students left at school over half-term. At the end of their night out, former step-siblings Red and Jazz try to navigate their reunion. With only a couple of hours until morning, Jaffa tries to help Keesh finish an essay. As day breaks, Wolfie is getting up the courage to confess a secret to VJ at a party.
Their choices are small yet momentous. The hours are small but feel very, very long. And when the night finally ends, the future is waiting – all of it.

Why I wrote this play
‘I wanted to write about the differences between adolescence and adulthood and explore whether snapshots of our lives as adolescents can illuminate the people we eventually become, as well as the way time can feel like a wide-open expanse when you’re young. Ultimately I wanted to write a piece that paid tribute to the small yet momentous events and choices of being a teenager, while showing how those fit into the larger shape of a life.’
