What happens to friends when life takes them in different directions?
When Stuart and Elizabeth meet their oldest friends, David and Kathy, to celebrate David's 40th birthday, they're not expecting the surprise announcement that changes all of their lives. Kiwi playwright Carl Nixon explores middle-class life with gusto, covering 25 years of family, friendship, careers and comic complications in a series of male birthday occasions. A wickedly funny Kiwi comedy from the writer of The Raft.
"The play is funny, with plenty of light-hearted pokes at political correctness and middle-class angst." NZ Listener.
Contains adult themes.
The Auckland premiere.
