A young couple are worried. They are worried about, well, everything. From student debt to the resurgence of ISIS.
After a ruined dinner, they compile a list of everything that troubles them. A deal is made. They will never be stressed about anything, ever again. Ever.
What follows is a desperate attempt to live the ideal twenty something lifestyle. A fresh start filled with cool new friends, ASMR Youtube channels, and home brewed Kombucha. But their new found stability will only last for so long, as a gnawing anxiety is uncovered that will rupture and ultimately consume their superficial world.
“Two Twenty Somethings” is a new Australian comedy about a generation who feel entitled to happiness. It is a probing look into a society where the expectations of the perfect life have outmatched the realities of growing up. The result will take audiences into the hearts and minds of young people and find nothing there but the little fears that rule their daily lives and the unattainable hope that they will somehow fix themselves.

"INJEST was an easily digestible 45 minutes of quirky humour and theatre magic...with such a quality show under their belt, I doubt this will be the last we hear of Sydney based theatre company, Bite Productions." - Xavier Hazard, Avenoir Mag (2016)
