****Anthony Banks’s effective production uses projections to create something buzzy and jazzy, but also has the simplicity and clarity of a Greek tragedy filtered through an episode of Skins. Lyn Gardner, Guardian
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?
This startling new play is fast becoming a contemporary classic with young audiences and has become a core set-text for GCSE English.
