An exhilarating coming of age story that explores the intensity of adolescent relationships. Preparing to leave small-town Cornwall for the bright lights of university and beyond, best friends Ina, Holman and Tre arrange one final night together before life, as they have always known it, will change forever. Inspired by Ina's Greek heritage, they gather in a sea cave late at night to perform an ancient ritual - the Eleusinian Mysteries - hoping their participation in this rite will cement their friendship forever. But as the waves rise to cut them off and the ritual unfolds, hidden betrayals emerge and they begin to fear that the cave may hold other unimaginably dark secrets - The Mystae premiered at Hampstead Theatre in February 2014.
