Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Sky, a precocious but quiet teenager, gets caught smoking weed and is sentenced to live with Miss Court, a young teacher entrusted with making sure Sky stays off the drugs. Between Miss Court's caution to keep the relationship a strictly professional one and Sky's disinterest in interacting at all, neither of them is expecting the other to be anything except a housemate. But a badly-timed COVID-19 infection forces the two to spend a fortnight with no social options except one another.

What emerges from the ashes of this explosion of misfortune could either be a beautiful gift, or a disaster...

An original musical about identity, trust, unexpected friendship, and weed.
