An in the round staging of the classic 1970 Sondheim piece.
Bobby, experiencing an existential crisis as he is about to reach the age of 35 and surrounded by the pressure of his adoring, coupled-up friends is pinballed from couple to couple as they question him as to his eternal singledom.
Staged as a moment that occurs in the blink of an eye (or the blowing out of a birthday candle), Bobby pieces together the lessons he learns from each encounter and is finally able to find the courage to come of age and understand the secret of ‘being alive’
