The Comeuppance by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

I guess this is just that age. 
The Age of Shit Showing Up. 
The Age of Bad Choices Seeking Their Consequences. 
Autumn 2022. A group of friends gather hours before their high school reunion. 
20 years have passed since graduation: some have had children; some have moved to the other side of the world; some have been to war. 
But there’s another presence in their midst. And as they catch-up and reminisce, it only takes a scratch for the scars of those school days to surface. 
Eric Ting (The Comeuppance US premiere; Between Two Knees) directs the UK premiere of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (An Octoroon; Appropriate) bitingly comic, strikingly timely satire, which asks if we can ever break free from the people we used to be. 
Full cast includes Yolanda Kettle (Patriots; The Crown), Ferdinand Kingsley (Silo; Reacher), Tamara Lawrance (The Silent Twins; King Charles III), Katie Leung (Harry Potter; White Pearl) and Anthony Welsh (The Flatshare; Sucker Punch). 
“One of this country’s most original and illuminating writers” The New York Times on Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
