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 new play for younger people DNA opened at the National Theatre in February 2008. Includes notes for teachers and those studying the play for GCSE English, as written by Anthony Banks theatre director and Associate Director of the National Theatre Discover Programme.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Dennis Kelly's cruel teaser of a play; Anthony Banks's snappy production sets the temperature at chilling. FOUR STARS * The Sunday Times *
Dennis Kelly's short, sharp shocker of a play cleverly piles on the twists... [his] sharp, reflective writing gets inside the characters' heads. FOUR STARS * The Guardian *
Tension so gripping you could almost taste it. Highly recommended. FOUR STARS * What's On Stage *
A taut, compelling thriller and a modern-day spin on Lord of the Flies, exploring group behaviour and moral equivocation. * Financial Times *
One of the best plays we have read this year...perfect for Key Stage Three students... If you don't teach this play at least buy a copy for your students to read. Rarely do you find a play that upon reading just the first two pages, you know that your students will love...not much will top this one for Key Stage Three, even for GCSE. * EHd Ltd *
