Everyone knows that friendships made in bathrooms are ones that last for life.

Cactus is a brutally funny, heartbreakingly honest new play for anyone who is or ever has been a teenager.

This timely play by Madelaine Nunn follows Abbie and her best friend PB as they navigate their last year of high school. It s going well. I mean, they re still virgins, but it s going well. Milestones are being met. Exams are drawing near. Freedom is on the horizon. Then Abbie gets some news that suddenly and unceremoniously plunges her into a world she wasn t ready for.
