In a world that’s lost all meaning, 25-year-old art school dropout James is searching for answers. To uncover the truth about himself, James embarks on a mission to become everything he’s not. But when all nighters at gay bars, drugs and sex fail to provide what is missing, will James accept that life is all downhill after 25?

Winner of the 2008-2009 Queensland Premier’s Drama Award, 25 Down is a fast-paced, funny and insightful play about the ‘children of’ the children of the revolution.
