WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Mess,/I> - Life isn't going well for Kelly and Gemma. Estranged from their families; their friends are leaving for uni and getting married; and there are no realistic prospects of employment. Until one morning they receive a letter from their landlord demanding the place be cleaned within 24 hours. As they dig their way through the mess in their flat, they find more than just rubbish. One Night Hire: The play follows the drink, drug and kebab juice stained lives of a bunch of reprobate restaurant workers, falling in and out of the local universities or just looking over the gates. When shoe-gazing drifter Edward has a pill fuelled epiphany, white wine philosopher Delia and wannabe wide boy Macaulay are on hand with dubious assistance. Catesby seeks the simple life and Nicole a route to glamour but everything comes at a cost.
