Everyone We Know Will Be There, Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre & Tiny Bear Jaws

It’s Bradley Freeman’s 17th birthday and his parents are on a yacht 10,000 miles away, drinking their body weights in margaritas. Cue the most orgiastic, booze-fuelled rager this town has ever seen. Follow one of five characters (The Outcast, Infiltrator, Deceiver, Archivist and Host) in this deafening site-specific investigation of teenage sex, identity, queerness, consent, and the warm, wet lessons we can only learn in the dark.

Set in a residential house, Everyone We Know Will Be There: A House Party in One Act splits its audience into groups to follow one of the cast’s five central characters. Viewers observe the party “invisibly” through their character’s eyes and experience uniquely intimate moments (sometimes as close as a foot away). The party’s raucous atmosphere is amplified by an ensemble of party guests (many of which are played by actual teenagers) embroiled in their own personal dramas, intersecting periodically with the show’s main cast.

Leading up to the event, you can add Brad as a friend on Facebook, or follow him on Twitter, and Instagram. You can also find Tiny Bears Jaws on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and follow the action at #everyoneweknow.

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early in weather-appropriate clothing. This play travels through a residential house; if you have any specific mobility/access requirements, please let us know at [email protected].
