In a world full of dead-end jobs and cyber-stalking, there's nothing a bag of chips and your best mate can't solve...
'Cold Chips' is a heart-warming story of two best mates, Ella and Ryan, who seek comfort in each other to find their way in life. A starlit bench reserved for two and a bag of chips each - every Friday evening is the same. Fending for themselves and attempting to 'adult' proves more difficult than they would like. When you've got no job and no money, like Ryan, life doesn't seem too bad when you can have a laugh with your best mate. 'I always envisioned my ultimate career goal would be to compensate people for their over ripened avocados...'.
Through humour and playful banter, 'Cold Chips' highlights the challenges young people face in today's economy; growing up yet still living with parents and struggling to find a job when you don't have the experience for the job that needs experience.
But there comes a time when they need to stop pretending. Acting like everything is OK works for a while, but not forever. Ella and Ryan are thankful to be in the same boat, with someone that will hold that oar and row for them, when it gets too heavy.
Cold Chips is a charming look at friendship, which has been compassionately written and lovingly performed
Cold Chips isn’t particularly ambitious or sophisticated, but it is familiar and heart-warming, and leaves its audience satisfied
