It’s living life, it’s on the road, it’s breaking free…

Jane’s best friend Sam is sixteen, homeless and a ghost. So he needs her to find his killer.

In her brave journey to discover what happened, Jane finds out about herself and what it means to be young, in love and alive in a confusing world.

This play turns friends into family. It will change the way you feel and, most of all, the way you meet new people.

(Crossings contains some strong language and one scene of a sexual nature.)

“I want to give people a really good night out at the theatre and still make people’s brains flip out and be amazed!” Clare Duffy
