A group of teenagers do something bad, really bad, then panic and cover the whole thing up. But when they find that the cover-up unites them and brings harmony to their otherwise fractious lives, where' s the incentive to put things right? DNA is a poignant and, sometimes, hilarious tale with a very dark heart. A contemporary play for younger people,DNA opened at the National Theatre in February 2008 Visit Samuel French for amateur performance enquiries
Dennis Kelly' s cruel teaser of a play; Anthony Banks' s snappy production sets the temperature at chilling. FOUR STARS -- The Sunday Times * The Sunday Times * Dennis Kelly' s short, sharp shocker of a play cleverly piles on the twists. . . [his] sharp, reflective writing gets inside the characters' heads. FOUR STARS -- The Guardian * The Guardian * A taut, compelling thriller and a modern-day spin on Lord of the Flies, exploring group behaviour and moral equivocation. -- Financial Times * Financial Times * Tension so gripping you could almost taste it. Highly recommended. FOUR STARS --What' s On Stage * What' s On Stage *
