About the Book

Amanda is a genius. Ily is a drug dealer. Kit is a runaway. Mutt is a mess. Will is a shit disturber. Daniel doesn’t know what he’s doing there.

It’s a high school garage party. Everyone’s a bit too drunk and a bit too stoned and a bit uncomfortable in their own skin. It’s an explosive combination, but it’s better than being alone on a Friday night in suburbia.

“Very real, very now, and unexpectedly poetic.”  — The Globe and Mail

 “Gritty, groundbreaking theatre; electrifying.” — Calgary Sun

 “A wild, sometimes hilarious expression of angst…You might want to look away, but you probably can’t.”  — Toronto Star
