Lou is getting on with her life, carefree and without ties. But this abruptly comes to a halt when her 19 year old god-daughter Minnie moves in to take up a place at university. Minnie’s arrival shines a harsh light into the corners of Lou’s life – revealing it to be not as it seems. Her relationships are complicated, her neighbours are closing in on her, and the clock is ticking. What does it mean to be a grown up?
Exciting new talent, director turned writer Deborah Bruce’s dark comedy explores the inescapable realities between feeling 19 and being 19. Deborah’s play The Distance has recently been nominated for The Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
