DNA by Dennis Kelly

What, dead?
Like dead, dead?

This dark comedy will have you on the edge of your seat. DNA by Dennis Kelly follows a gang of teenagers who find themselves caught up dealing with the consequences of a prank that goes fatally wrong.

DNA is frequently studied by GCSE students as the text explores important themes such as bullying, gang membership, social responsibility, morality and leadership.

Is My Microphone On? by Jordan Tannahill

A Vital Call to Action from the Voices of Tomorrow

In a world where the voices of youth are often overshadowed by the noise of adult concerns, Is My Microphone On? emerges as a powerful and urgent call to action. Written by award-winning playwright Jordan Tannahill, this compelling piece of theatre gives the stage to a chorus of young people who refuse to remain silent any longer.

Through an evocative blend of monologue and choral speaking, these young voices confront the pressing issues of our time—climate change, social justice, and the future of our planet. They question the legacy being left for them and challenge the audience to reflect on their role in shaping a sustainable and equitable world.

Is My Microphone On? is more than a performance; it is a rallying cry for positive action and change. A showcase of youth activism.

Join us for an unforgettable experience that transcends traditional theatre, offering not just a reflection but a mirror in which we all must see ourselves. Is My Microphone On? is a clarion call for change, voiced by those who will inherit the consequences of our actions.

Don’t miss this electrifying and thought-provoking production that challenges, inspires, and compels us to listen—truly listen—to the voices of our future.
