History Boys meets Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour as we follow four girls on the cusp of adulthood in this new take on the classic coming of age tale. Until now they've lived mostly in their imagination – suddenly real life interrupts and their friendship bears the brunt of it. In Siofra Dromgoole’s playful and sincere script, the young women reflect upon what it is to grow up in the 21st century: reflecting on themselves, their friendship and the politics of the day.
