"I was struck by the talent of every single person on stage"
Sardines Magazine  

Following the success of its 2017 sell-out production, the National Youth Theatre are delighted to announce the second return of this Dennis Kelly favourite. Under the dynamic direction of 2016 Bryan Forbes Bursary winner and Frantic Assembly practitioner Sean Hollands, this hilarious tale with a very dark heart will be staged by Britain’s best young talent. 

Amongst the darkness of an unnamed wood, a lawless gang are trying to bury a dark secret. The group need someone to take charge, but who can they trust? Who do they follow? While lies spiral and tension mounts, everyday adolescence twists and turns into an anarchic game of survival.
