Four one-act plays, all taking place at various pubs on the one Friday night.

'Sex with the Ex - a guy returns from overseas and tries to start it up with his ex, only to find now she's a Christian.

'About a Girl Who' - a girl's attempt at Friday night after-work drinks is ruined by the arrival of her boss and work enemy.

'Faghag City' - a guy tries to pick up a girl by pretending to be gay.

'Brisbane is the Centre of the Universe' - a guy's attempt to start a new relationship is ruined by the presence of his ex.

'....a surprisingly fine comedy ..a witty and ever-so-slightly subversive comment on Brisbane 20-somethings and the culture of drinking after work.'
