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
‘A taut, compelling thriller and a modern-day spin on Lord of the Flies, exploring group behaviour and moral equivocation’ – Financial Times
‘Dennis Kelly’s cruel teaser of a play; Anthony Banks’s snappy production sets the temperature at chilling.’ 4 stars – The Sunday Times
