The London premiere of a new musical comedy by Dougal Irvine.
Delayed at Malaga Airport after a week in the sun to celebrate their graduation from school, four less-than-innocent 18 year olds caught between adolescence and adulthood reminisce about their time together. It soon becomes clear that their individual memories of the holiday are at odds, particularly when it comes to romance and the girl on all their minds…. Is she as innocent as we’re lead to think and will the boys friendships hold firm as they all face a coming of age?
The production received rave reviews and played to sold-out houses at the Edinburgh Festival and Summer Play Festival in New York. Shot through with razor sharp humour, moments of tenderness and infectious songs Departure Lounge is set to be the most exciting and entertaining British musical this year.
