Description

Growing up is hard. Learning to use a washing machine is harder. This original musical, featuring a live string quartet, follows Cass and James – siblings called back to their childhood home to pack up for one last time. As they box up their old lives, tensions rise and they must confront themselves and each other about who they've become, the decisions that led them there and what it means to be grown up. It's certain to make you laugh, remember flying the nest and check for cats next time you use the dryer.
