9 - 13 years
As events fly out of control, a group of friends are caught in the middle. Shaken by what they see and do, their friendship is tested like never before. What will happen when life returns to normal? And what are people saying about the 'youth of today'?
Inspired and shaped by interviews with hundreds of children across the country, this explosive and thought-provoking new play invites young people to discuss what they thought about last summer's riots. Their words, opinions and stories have been woven into the action, exploring the impact of what happened and what it means to be growing up in the UK today.
