We’re growing up okay, right?

Synopsis

This two-person dramedy shares a glimpse of the last 24 hours best friends Allie and Mia live together after eight years. Spending their time drinking and reminiscing, Allie gears up to move in with her boyfriend while Mia struggles to come out to her mom. As they pack up their things, they unpack their own underlying insecurities.

Through this unique (and somewhat unhealthy) relationship, viewers take a deep dive into the mentality of two 20-somethings as they struggle to figure out who they are in the world and simply within their own lives.


How it came to be…

When college roommates and best friends Julia Karis and Emily Rekstis found themselves with extra time on their hands, they decided to do something productive with it. Emily, a freelance writer, and Julia, an actress, it seemed like a natural progression that they put their talents together to develop a play. And what else would two people who think they’re the funniest in the room do other than write a comedy about themselves?

What started out as a fun pass time soon turned into a passion project as they discovered the humor and humility in the fictional version of their lives.

After months of writing over coffees and beers they applied to the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, DC. Joined by close college friend, Kelly Hubbell starring as Allie, as well as new friends Liz Callahan as the director and Alex Duncker as a producer, the all-female team brought home the Best Comedy Award. Now they’re hoping to further share their story with new audiences in NYC and beyond.
