"LOCK UP YOUR SONS. AND YOUR DAUGHTERS IF THE MOOD FITS. TONIGHT WE ARE GETTING DESTROYED.”
In a world of limited opportunity and few ways out, a celebrity status might just save you. But today’s been a bad day.... Nate's coming to the end of his career, Yaz hasn't the means to get herself one and Josh 's injury could finish his before it's even started.... Bad days need great nights out. But at the end of the night, when things are out of control, someone might get hurt.
Lose Yourself is a funny, powerful and poignant story for right now. This major new play will take you on a fast, dark ride with three people who have one goal - to get out into the night and lose themselves.
