The cast is headed by Olivier nominee Tyrone Huntley as Justin, Melissa James as Naomi, and Cedric Neal as The Narrator with Matthew Caputo, Shiv Rabheru, and Miles Barrow as the cousins.

Based on a true story as reported in the series This American Life, the musical focuses on Justin, a high school senior who falls madly in love with new girl Naomi Rodriguez. He won't give up until she goes to prom with him, and he'll try anything to impress her, including buying drugs from the cool kids. But Naomi has a secret: she's an undercover cop.
