SynopsisA group of friends regularly gather at The Red Dragon for karaoke night where they always have a good night out, despite miserly landlord Len. We join them as they celebrate the eve of Spike's 40th birthday with another night of fun and karaoke - a night which will end in tragic circumstances. This one act play overflows with fine quickfire adult humour which clicks effortlessly into tragedy made all the more startlingly heart-breaking because we have become so close to the well drawn characters and laughed along with them. With inspired use of the karaoke theme this play has us laughing and crying in equal measure.
