When things go wrong for a group of teenagers, they find their fractious lives are brought together by their attempts to cover it up. Read More >

DNA is a compelling thriller featuring Eastenders actor James Alexandrou.

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?

First performed at the National Theatre in 2008, this startling play is fast becoming a contemporary classic for young audiences and has recently become a core set-text on the GCSE English syllabus, studied by up to 400,000 students nationwide each year.

Suitable for ages 12+
