    Footlights ' Harry Porter Prize Nominee 2016,

    The Guitar Players present BAND, A Play About A Band.

    Set in 2016, it follows a day in the life of a five new graduate millennials who have boomeranged back to their parent's houses in the Hampshire village of Micheldever. They are pursuing careers in East London – and preferably Dalston.

    The band await a photojournalist from Winchester Daily Echo in Jill's mum's garage. But will she ever arrive?

    When asked in a 2015 NME interview who his music idol was, Matty Healy of the 1975 answered: ‘Who should idolize me? David Bowie.’ In sympathy with Matty, Band explores the way social pressures encourage us to construct identity with a motive to appear ‘cool’. In climates such as these, can anyone truly be trusted?
