I’m just a little conscious of time…

From the logical case for kissing immediately, to the crisis of filling a free afternoon, buckets is a warm, wise and witty take on a universal dilemma – how do you deal with the fact that time always runs out?

An interwoven web of stories, characters and moments – moments seized, moments wasted, moments you can never forget and moments you wish you could – buckets is a unique and entertaining new play about bucket lists, life planning and the disappointing fact that you’re not going to live forever. 

Oh, and there's singing too.
