Welcome to the party! It’s the afterball, don’t tell the teachers, don’t tell your parents. It’s two weeks since Joseph died – drunk and daring he jumped off a roof diving for a swimming pool, but never made it to the water. His friends have gathered to remember but some just want to forget. His girlfriend, his sister, his best mate – should they remember him for his tragic fall or should they celebrate the guy who dared to jump? Amongst the chaos and revelry of the night you’ll see how his loss has challenged the way they live their lives. Come party like there’s no tomorrow!
Originally developed by the Auckland Theatre Company and the PlayGround Collective, Like There’s No Tomorrow works with local youth to explore the intergenerational nature of our national obsession with binge-drinking.
Like There’s No Tomorrow was developed in collaboration with the Auckland Theatre Company Creative Development department from an original idea by Lynne Cardy and was first presented by Auckland Theatre Company on 27 July 2013 at the Basement Theatre in Auckland. It was co-produced with the Festival of Colour in 2015 for a season in Wanaka, collaborating with students from Mount Aspiring College.
