World premiere of new Australian musical - Sydney Fringe 2018

Troy and Emma are bored and alone.

One night as they both spend another predictably quiet night in, they curiously delve into the world of online dating through the website FINDR. It's a world where they can be whoever they want to be, and project whatever they want to project.

Whether this will offer quick fix validation, or the company they desperately need, depends on how real they are willing to be; with themselves, and with each other.
