In the play, Lou likes to feel her life is carefree and without ties. But this comes to an abrupt halt when her 19-year-old goddaughter Minnie moves in to take up a place at university. Minnie’s arrival reveals Lou’s life to be not as it seems. Her relationships are complicated, her neighbors are closing in on her, and the clock is ticking. What does it mean to be a grown up?  According to press materials, director-turned-writer Deborah Bruce explores the inescapable differences between feeling 19 and being 19.

The cast compromises Tracy-Ann Oberman (last seen at Hampstead in Old Money earlier this year), Pearl Chandra (a recent graduate from RADA), Michael Shaeffer (seen at the Naional Theatre in Table and London Road) and Chook Sibtain (seen at the National, RSC, Shakespeare's Globe and Almeida).
