Can't Wait To Leave

by Stephen Leach

Meet Ryan. 19 (but young for his age). School drop-out (but smart). Turkey sandwich enthusiast (365 days a year). Absolute stunner (no addendum).
He's new in town, and all he wants to do is check out. The hard part is coming up with an exit plan.
When the one person he thought he could rely on ups and leaves, Ryan finds himself adrift in a city he still hasn’t learned to like, looking for direction. Six months to kill, no money, no rules… surely this is the worst possible time to be alone?
That's when he meets Richard, who seems to have all the answers...
Fierce, razor-sharp, and uncompromisingly honest, Can't Wait To Leave is a bitingly frank portrayal of loneliness and self-discovery from a phenomenal new talent.
This production contains strong language, adult themes, and references to intoxication, violence, and sexual abuse.
