NGYT Theatre Company co-devised this script in immediate response to living through the pandemic, through zoom calls and socially distanced rehearsals and daily testing this show was set inside the first house party since lockdown.

You’ll always remember this time. The bit where some grew and others fell inevitably further.
Come through the side gate and join us in the garden, be with us, make anew, forget yourself and start again. Where fear and hope dance hand in hand, where music settles silence, where we remember all we were and live the dream that is now…because we finally can.
