It's the wee small hours of a long weekend somewhere in Melbourne...Gracie's been driving all night; Dean's pinched his mum's car and is out for a game of 'Stop Means Go' with his mate Angas; Sam's broken down on a lonely back road and Robbo pulls over to give her a lift… but he’s got more in mind than just being a good Samaritan.

Someone's not going to make it home tonight.

'One of the keys to successful youth theatre has to be creating work which has relevance to a young audience, and [with this one] St Martins has hit paydirt...the play has an unusual and effective structure, is peopled with believable and interesting characters, and is refreshingly free of preachiness or message.' Fiona Scott-Norman, Inpress Magazine, 26 August 1993
