DNA by Dennis Kelly
1 Dead body
(The death was frankly a little inconvenient)
A group of teenagers weave a bloody web of lies in a jet-black comedy by the multi-award-winning writer Dennis Kelly. It seems that covering up a murder isn’t child’s play.
A group of peculiar adolescents 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.
Cap T is proud to present the regional premiere of this funny, fresh and tremendously touching play that was a smash hit in the UK.
Running Time: 80 minutes without intermission.
"This is a jet-black comedy that lays bare the way that self-interest, peer pressure and an inability to really connect and empathise with others leads to a creeping corruption
- The Guardian
"A taut, compelling thriller and a modern-day spin on Lord of the Flies, exploring group behaviour and moral equivocation'
