    Sixth Formers stage black comic thriller 'DNA'

    King’s Sixth Form actors will hope to get away with murder in the jet-black psychological comedy ‘DNA’ by revered modern master Dennis Kelly.


    The action revolves around a group of teenagers who try to cover up what they think has been a murder among their group, only eventually to find they were mistaken but at what cost to their knowledge of themselves and one another.


    It is a short, sharp shocker of a play that cleverly piles on the twists, as guilt and madness work their poison on the group dynamics.


    King’s Head of Drama Donald Forbes said: “It is a fascinating study of how young people will defend themselves and avoid reality. It is very sparse and psychologically menacing, but not without its moments of black humour and it gives our young actors some powerful dialogue and action to work with.”


    The production in the King’s Sixth Form Drama Centre runs from Tuesday 12 February to Friday 15 February and tickets are priced at £8 (available on ParentPay or via 01625 260000).
