DNA by British playwright and screenwriter Dennis Kelly (Matilda: The Musical, The Third Day) was written for the Royal National Theatre's Connections program for youth theater. Its professional debut was at the NT's Cottesloe Theatre in 2008.
When a group of teenagers commit a terrible crime, they move to cover it up. When this act implicates an innocent man, the panic creates a schism in the gang that divides them and their core values. Kelly's play brings the very essence of human nature to the fore and forces us to question the behaviors that may be inherent in all of us.
