Megan, Holly and Ben are definitely not the cool kids. But Megan has a plan. One long summer holiday to change their lives. One sure path to coolness. One amazing transformation, through the power of song.

Holed up in Megan's garden shed, three old friends try to change their fortunes in a beautiful, heart-warming, laugh-out-loud coming-of-age story for our times. Rock on.

Tom Wells' play Broken Biscuits was first performed at Live Theatre, Newcastle, in 2016, in a co-production between Live Theatre and Paines Plough, before a UK tour.

‘The point is: we’re losers. Nobodies. Carry on like this, we’re losers forever. And we don’t have to be. Fresh start, two months to completely one hundred per cent reinvent ourselves. And I know exactly how we can do that.’

Press Quotes

'The dialogue feels authentic while the lyrics feel like Victoria Wood for a new generation… a bittersweet new play'

The Stage

'It's funny. It's engaging, even heart-warming, but most of all, it's perceptive about the characters' concerns and insecurities... writer Tom Wells clearly understands teenagers, so we really do believe what we are seeing'

British Theatre Guide

'A sweet meditation on the fierce, fragile alliances formed on the cusp of adulthood... treads a perfect line between gauche charm and whimsy'
