A One-Act Play by emerging writer Corey Skaggs.
Three schoolfriends decide to meet up after 20 years of being apart in an out of the way, dingy pub on the outskirts of London. Each are desperate to rekindle the relationship they once shared but the more they reminisce, the more they start to dredge up old issues of unrequited love, loneliness, and even jealousy - the very things that spit up their impenetrable friendship all those years ago. As the evening progresses, they slowly start to regress into the insecure, ego-driven, naive students they once were. In an attempt to forge a new relationship as adults, the three are forced to finally face their differences head on.
