Careless follows best friends Sam, a care assistant, and Bryony, a struggling actor. Sam had no prior experience in healthcare and with only two weeks of training she threw herself into the job. Her typical working day couldn’t be more different from Bryony's. It’s the night of Bryony’s 25th birthday: over prosecco, shots and killer dance moves they are suddenly faced with truths neither of them can avoid. Written Off Theatre examines the complexities of female friendship when worlds collide under the pressures of working in social care. Will their friendship survive the night?
