“Apparently you’re clever…So. What do we do?”
A group of teenagers gather in a wood. They have made a terrible mistake – a mistake which could destroy all of their futures. In panic, they decide to cover the whole thing up. But when the cover-up unites them and brings harmony to their otherwise fractious lives, where’s the incentive to put things right?
Dennis Kelly’s savage black comedy, first performed at the National Theatre in 2007, is fast becoming a classic.
“DNA is a brilliant play: it’s about friendship, acceptance, and the pressure to do the right thing. It explores how the dynamics of a friendship group can shift when something extraordinary happens. The characters are horribly real and recognisable; watching the play, I think it can make us all a little uncomfortable and maybe question what we would do in this situation. Would we behave any better?” – Helen Brown, Director of Drama
