About the Project

Kat is under commission with the MAC to write a new play LUSH.

“Friends are the family we choose for ourselves”, we would shout as we renounced the constraints of the rules of our caregivers! But what happens to these friendships when we grow up and navigate the pitfalls of life. Do they grow with us or do they disintegrate and die? LUSH is an exploration of the evolution of friendships and what that entails.
