Theatre - Spoken Word Youth Theatre
Playwright Andrew Macpherson described his play as "an attempt to express the relationships of six young men, their attitudes and the small world they inhabit. Their actions are an ongoing affair of dependence on Ted, who has legal control of The Flat. Ted begins to question this dependence on the first half of the play, then resolves to do something about it. He tries to reject The Flat as his world".
