20 - 23 October 2021 TWO TWENTY SOMETHINGS DECIDE NEVER TO BE STRESSED ABOUT ANYTHING EVER AGAIN. EVER. by Michael Costi

I’m stressed. I’m worried.
I don’t know how tax works.
I know it’s a thing that happens but I’ve got no idea. 
Sometimes I go to T2 and talk to the staff just so I know what it feels like to be loved.

A young couple are worried about, well, everything. From student debt to hand hygiene, the resurgence of ISIS to whatever the hell edamame is. After a ruined dinner, they write a list of everything that troubles them. A deal is made: they will never be stressed about anything, ever again. Ever. 

What follows is a desperate attempt to live the ideal millennial lifestyle, filled with cool friends, indoor plants, and home brewed Kombucha. But getting it all right is harder than it seems. This is a generation of self-care and selfies, handicrafts and humble brags, of adult responsibilities and childlike impulses, in a fast-paced, high-stress world. 

Two Twenty Somethings… is a biting, satirical comedy that captures the anxieties of being young right now. It is a probing look into a society where the expectations of the perfect life have outmatched the realities of growing up, uncovering the fears that rule our daily lives, and the hope that things will somehow fix themselves.
