It’s hard keeping it together when your whole life is falling apart. But the pressures of teaching, Tinder and outrageous Irish best mates are a lot to juggle, especially when you’re stumbling through the maze of trying to be a grown-up.

It explores the grey areas surrounding guilt, grief and shame and how we react to them in modern culture.

Stranger danger, heartbreak and piña coladas are on the syllabus in the hilarious debut play by Maddie Rice.

This show was developed with the help of Katie Pesskin and Soho Theatre Writers’ Lab.
