Vinny’s organising a surprise birthday party for his mate Anita. It’s not going well: his choice of venue is a bit misguided, Anita’s not keen on leaving the house, and everyone else has their own stuff going on. Maybe a surprise party wasn’t the best idea? A play about friendship, loss and the way people try to do the right thing when there isn’t really a right thing to do.

Life is never plain sailing, but when a new government initiative offers the chance to train and learn skills overseas, droves of teens jump at the chance to secure their future. Once on board the transport ship, the promises of the glossy advert seem a far cry from what lies ahead. A play about generations, choices and hope.
