It’s Bradley Freeman’s 17th birthday and his parents are on a yacht 10,000 miles away, drinking their body weights in margaritas. Cue the most orgiastic, booze-fuelled rager this town has ever seen. Follow one of five characters (The Outcast, Infiltrator, Deceiver, Archivist, and Host) in this deafening site-specific investigation of teenage sex, identity, queerness, consent, and the warm, wet lessons we can only learn in the dark.
