Quench is an absurdist comedy like no other. Set in a drinks vending machine of dreams, hopes and shakes. We follow the adventures of Sparkling, Appletania and the gang of vocal drinks as they come to terms with the impending closure of the Leisure centre… and therefore their home. With the introduction of Fizzy Orange, these deliciously adventurous drinks must rally together to grab a plan of action and escape before it’s too late. This fantastic new piece of writing might make you question your future beloved drink choices… Not to be missed!
