A Girl in School Uniform (Walks Into a Bar)
It’s the future. But only slightly.
There are blackouts. No one knows what’s causing them, but that doesn’t stop people going missing in them.
Now Steph and Bell, a schoolgirl and barmaid, have to search for their missing friend, until the outside world starts infecting the theatre that stands around them…
Please note, significant parts of this production happen in darkness.
