Michaelmas Week 2
'This has been the worst day of my life. So can you please get drunk with me?'
Ruth has just been dumped by her 'fucking boyfriend'. She, Dana and Jess spend their Friday night drinking, smoking and getting stoned. Joined by Jess's Dad Jim after being booted out of the family home the party-cum-crisis prevention evening collapses into chaos and maturity disappears with every shot of booze.
Having recently completed a successful run at the Royal Court, award winning young playwright Anya Reiss's new play is sharp and pacy, offering a hilarious insight to the dysfunction of young adult life.
'The Acid Test' is the second play from Anya Reiss, whose play 'Spur of the Moment' premiered at the Royal Court in July 2009, winning her the award for Most Promising Playwright at both the Evening Standard and Critics Circle awards. Anya completed the Young Writers Programme at the Royal Court and wrote her first play when she was 17.
