Written by Alex Mullarky from Whitehaven, Cumbria, the third winner of our New Lines playwriting competition.


In the ruins of an old church in a remote corner of West Cumbria 4 teenagers meet up to drink lager, mess about and talk about the future. Avery plans to be an artist, Laurie needs a job, Adam hopes to join the army and Chris just wants to fit in.

Then 2 things happen which change their world, something right there in the ruins and something 3,567 miles away.
