A city. Summer. 2000. In the nightclubs, bars and cafes, four young people are searching. But for what? Sex, love or friendship?

Desire follows the lives of four young adults caught in a web of interlocking friendships, relationships and romance: a quartet striving for some substance in an image obsessed world.

It's a play about finding an emotional balance in a world of surface. It hums with the inner city pulse of traffic, caffeine and designer drugs. Fast, funny, sexy and enticing!
