Four blokes, four beers, one hour and one actor. This honest and darkly funny tale introduces you to four mates who meet at the same bar at the same time every year. But this year, it’s different…
A dark and dangerous secret brings these blokes together in an unbreakable bond of mateship and solidarity. On the eve of their annual get-together, the truth is in danger of being let out. As his mates rally around our main character, George, in an effort to protect him from whatever consequences may come, he takes this final moment of safety to reveal all to the audience before their lives are changed forever.

"Shane Pike as both actor and writer excels. This is a fast-paced engrossing and highly relevant tale, in which humour, revulsion, anger and empathy are dealt in equal measure. Shane Pike never loses momentum as he pauses, reflects, jokes and teases and ultimately leaves us questioning good, evil, innocence and justice ... This is real, genuine, gritty, personal and intimate ... This is story-telling at its best." - Brenna Lee-Cooney, The Westender

"In a brilliant one-man performance, writer and actor Shane Pike plays George, an ordinary Aussie bloke ... the highest accolades must go to Pike: his script is hilarious and poetic in turn, and his performance is endearing, touching and affecting." - Imogen Riethmuller, Official Anywhere Theatre Festival Review
