Friday 18th October 2019 - Sunday 20th October 2019

Summary

Inspired by the true stories of a young offender from Glasgow, a 15 year old who had committed a violent crime, this short play was part of the National Theatre's New Connections programme which commissions plays about and for young people and was presented to critical acclaim at the Royal National Theatre. It's a hard-hitting play about 'getting bullied, fighting back, trying to make a name for yourself, turning vicious, doing something stupid, losing everything, then finding your way again.
