It is New Year's Eve, 1987. For fifteen-year-old Teddy Michaels, it is a very significant day. He must find a new home following the disappearance of his mother and celebrate his best friend Jude's birthday by taking as many drugs as Jude can find. But he will also lose his virginity - to Jude's step-sister, Eliza - and his life. Teddy's death will have a profound effect on the people he leaves behind. His brother Johnny, who has moved to New York and joined the Straight Edge scene, Jude, who will finally have to face his own demons, and Eliza, who will find herself responsible for both taking and giving a life. Winding its way through Vermont, New York, the Straight Edge music scene and the early days of the AIDS epidemic, Ten Thousand Saints is a fierce, brilliant depiction of all types of love and its flaws, of life, loss and pain; a profoundly human story that explores how one moment of carelessness can impact the lives of so many. Ages 15+.
