18th Birthday Show

Created by Vena Cava Productions

You are invited to celebrate Vena Cava Production’s coming of age at The 18th Birthday Show. It’s going to be a night of loud music, close friends, lost iPhones and secret kisses. Four friends lead the party with wild abandon, determined to host the party of their lives: complete with dance battles, bedtime heart-to-hearts and far too many shots.

But as the night wears on, the line between celebration and desperation begins to blur. The ominous shadow of adulthood draws ever closer, threatening to smother the light of our childhood freedom. Join us as we embark on a grand adventure across the landscape of the party itself in order to acquire the essential knowledge of grown-up wisdom. We have big questions to answer and time is running out.

So grab a drink and wear sensible shoes…It’s going to be one hell of a night.

In the Media

"Turning 18 can be equally exiting and alarming time of life, love and career decisions. After all, how can a mere date accurately measure the readiness to transition from childhood freedom to ominous, impending adulthood? Indeed, this is the theme of the 18th Birthday Show… To be grown up or not to be grown up? (That is the question)."
