DELAYED at Malaga Airport after a week in the sun to celebrate their graduation from school, four less-than-innocent 18-year-olds caught between adolescence and adulthood, reminisce.

It soon becomes clear that their individual memories of the holiday are at odds, particularly when it comes to romance and the girl on all their minds.

Is she as innocent as we’re led to think and will the boys’ friendships hold firm as they all face a coming of age?

The production has received rave reviews and played to sold-out houses at the Edinburgh Festival, The Summer Play Festival in New York and had a six week run at the Royal George Cabaret Theatre, Chicago by the Balliwick Chicago company. In late 2010, it received its first fully staged London production, and was nominated for a What’s On Stage award.

Now it’s performed by Music Theatre South at Hanger Farm Arts Centre in Totton from Thursday to Saturday.
