Jack and Eli spend their days hanging out in Eli's bedroom, drinking beers and riffing on movies, music and girls.

But when the death of a friend causes Jack to look inside himself, he doesn't like what he sees, sparking a spiritual journey for the two to James K. Baxter's grave in remote Jerusalem, New Zealand.

"A work of extraordinary wit, perspicacity and humanity" - John Smythe, Theatreview

"A stunning success: a young and highly talented playwright's road trip meditation on life, death, and the whole damned thing. It's hip, funny and moving" - Laurie Atkinson, The Dominion Post
