• 7th - 12th August 2023
  • By Dennis Kelly Director Colin Snell

Parker & Snell Youth Company is delighted to present ‘DNA’ by Dennis Kelly, directed by Colin Snell, at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2023.

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 once fractious lives, where’s the incentive to put things right?

Originally written for the National Theatre’s Connection programme, Dennis Kelly’s 21st-century play calls society’s response to cruelty, bullying, peer pressure, and pack mentality into question.

Are these behaviours societal and learned, or are they inherent in us all?

“Tension so gripping you can almost taste it!”

Venue 9 theSpace @ Niddry Street from 1.15pm.
