In an abandoned building a group of young people are forced to confront the very thing that scares them most. Themselves. The mysterious and complicated culture of inner-city youth was exploded in this gripping play, which breathed with a raw poetic language and a contemporary soundtrack.

Part street vernacular, part theatrical tradition, at times harrowing and at others searingly true – this was a play about the world of the teenage mind. Novelist and writer Courttia Newland deployed an abstract, poetic narrative style to invigorate this physical and fast paced production that toured nationally.

This production was originally developed as part of Exchange for Change 2010.

You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection. This play is also listed on the National Theatre’s Black Plays Archive.
