A Friend's Request is a cruel and bitter misanthropic comedy about the lives of three lonely people in the age of social networks. Tal has only four Facebook friends. Jake has a few hundred Facebook friends, but in reality he mostly socializes with Tal. He is in love with the influencer and former reality TV star @Big_Bum and wooing her. After a very embarrassing incident turns him into an internet celebrity, they end up together, and their wedding breaks the internet. The deserted Tal, who feels left out, decides to give the newlyweds his services as a social media manager as a wedding present. The envy, grudge, and greed over the potential number of likes each one of the three might gain will quickly shake up the new family, and lead to horrible acts of vengeance.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today. Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
The Larkum Studio is accessed through the far side of the ADC Bar.
