UCC Youth Theatre presents DNA by Denis Kelly




'Like Dead, Dead?'

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.

This is UCC Youth Theatre first public sharing of work in the Theatre Lab - come along and see what we do!

The play runs at roughly 60Min and is not suitable for under 14s. Contains strong language and deals with themes of bullying and death. Minors should seek parental consent prior to attending unaccompanied.
