Meet Scott, Deborah and Sophie.

Three students thrown together by COVID-19 quarantine, they are trapped in the company of strangers. This isn’t the university life they were promised and as the atmosphere in the house becomes increasingly claustrophobic, Scott buries himself in his music and Deborah dives into the bottle. An unexpected suggestion from Sophie offers friendship and redemption as together they embark on the trip of a lifetime.

You’ll meet Scott, Sophie, Deborah, her girlfriend Danielle and learn more about George the lost dog in SOUR BREATH // adolescent gutter, the final instalment of this audio-play series, On the Street Where We Live.

You can’t come to our place, so we’ll come to yours.
On The Street Where We Live explores love, tragedy and redemption; hope, compassion and forgiveness. It’s funny and upbeat; tragic and heart-wrenching. It’s about real people leading unreal lives. It’s about the times we’re living through. It’s about the streets we’re living on.
