“Sometimes things just end.
Not like in films and on TV.
Not with explosions and music and fights.
They just dissolve and disappear and you don’t know why.”

Lili pounds out her anger and uncertainty, one length at a time in the swimming pool. Yaz won’t become what others want and aspires to a life elsewhere.

The birth of their friendship sparks two years of adventure, inseparable friends, a gang of two, they breathe freedom, possibility and ambition.

“I want to plunge her fist into my ribcage. Wrap her hand around my heart so she can feel what it’s made of.”

But something unspoken grows between them. As relationships form and dissolve, it is the beginning and the end of everything.

Projection, moving image and a pulsating orginal soundtrack by one of Britain’s freshest new producers, invigorated this compelling tale that forced us all to question our own truths about who we really are.

This production toured venues and youth settings nationally.

You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection.
