In the darkness of the night, we all have our secrets…

For the first time, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama has partnered with the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch to produce Dennis Kelly’s modern day black comedy. The production, which is a set text on the GCSE English Literature and Drama curriculum, has attracted audiences of more than 30 schools and colleges, with some students travelling as a far as Dorset, West Yorkshire and Lancashire to see this unique collaboration at the Hornchurch Theatre.

DNA was first performed at the National Theatre in 2007 and is tailored specifically for young audiences. It tells the explosive story about a group of teenagers who do something really bad, panic and then try to cover it up.
