Performed

10 March - 12 April 2017

GEST is delighted to be the first to produce this brand new gem of a play following on from its original production in England. 

A hilarious, heart-warming and beautiful coming-of-age tale for our times!

Megan, Ben and Holly are definitely not the cool kids. But Megan has a plan. One long summer holiday to change their lives. One sure path to coolness. And there's nothing cooler than being in a band. "The point is: we're losers. Nobodies. Carry on like this, we're losers forever. And we don't have to be. Fresh start, two months to completely one hundred per cent reinvent ourselves. And I know exactly how we can do that."

"The play is snappy, intelligent and surprising. And very funny!...Everyone who has been through -or going through- adolescence can relate and release with liberating laughter when the actors nail their moments."  Göteborgs-Posten
