Highlighting the aftermath of drunken teen mistakes and a grief stricken community, the play is set in a graveyard and a local pub in Bridgend, transporting the audience through fragmented time frames exploring feelings of love, loss and hope. The set aimed to immerse the audience, giving the sense of unity and familiarity, from the sensory smells of beer to sticky pub carpet laid over the theatre.
