Description

Megan, Holly and Ben are definitely not the cool kids. But Megan has a plan.

One long summer holiday to change their lives. One sure path to coolness. One amazing transformation, through the power of song.

Holed up in Megan's garden shed, three old friends try to change their fortunes in a beautiful, heart-warming, laugh-out-loud coming-of-age story for our times.

Praise For Writer Tom Wells

"Tom Wells writes plays of great heart"
The Stage on Tom Wells' Folk (2016) ★★★★

"Tom Wells is a writer of exquisite stealth. His characters are the overlooked, ordinary people of everyday life, drawn with an intimacy that feels as warm as an embrace from an old friend. Then suddenly he reaches inside your chest and gently squeezes your heart"
The Times on Tom Wells' Folk (2016) ★★★★

"The most significant writer to emerge from Withernsea ... Tom Wells has quietly built up a reputation for sweet, compassionate plays about everyday folk ... Wells understands loners, losers and the loveless as well as any dramatist working today"
The Guardian on Tom Wells' Folk (2016) ★★★★

"Tom Wells' comedy about an unlikely friendship cemented in folk music is a gem. It sparkles throughout with warm humour and sharp wit yet under that shiny surface lie some deeper questions about loyalty, trust and generosity"
