An exhilarating coming-of-age story that explores the intensity of adolescent relationships.

Preparing to leave small-town Cornwall for the bright lights of university and beyond, best friends Ina, Holman and Tre arrange one final night together. Inspired by Ina’s Greek heritage, they gather in a sea cave late at night to perform an ancient ritual that they hope will cement their friendship forever. But as the waves rise to cut them off and the ritual unfolds, hidden betrayals emerge and they begin to fear that the cave may hold other unimaginably dark secrets…

Nick Whitby’s play The Mystae was first performed at Hampstead Theatre, London, in February 2014.
