"We can invite all our friends, drink what we like, stay up as late as we want, - who's gonna say no?
Our very own half g, quarter acre shagging paradise."
In 1974, as the NZ cricket team fails to win against Australia, four men fresh out of university buy a section at the beach for the ultimate Kiwi summer. The onstage action parallels our turbulent cricket history of the next twenty-three years, as we watch the ‘Boys at the Beach’, and later their families, drink, sing, play cricket and hang around the barbie as they stumble into manhood and the associated rites of Kiwi passage to become upstanding citizens and men of property.
