AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'James is 25, fresh out of art school and utterly lost. His best friend Emma is stuck in a dead-end job, might be pregnant, and thinks she's in love with James. The trouble is James is gay. Then again, there's always the married man with the comb-over at Emma's work. Simon and Gary also think they might be in love, despite the fact that Gary is old enough to be Simon's dad. Everyone obsesses about passing life's use-by date as they drift through the coffee shops, bars and apartments of Brisbane. Richard Jordan's award-winning new play is a heartfelt slice of sex in our very own city.' Source: www.qldtheatreco.com.au/ (Sighted 10/11/02008).
