DNA; Deoxyribonucleic Acid is a poignant yet at times a hilarious tale with a very, very dark heart. A group of teenagers take a joke to far and do something really bad which results in a lonely and terrified boy disappearing. They panic and cover the whole thing up. However when they find that the cover-up unites them and brings harmony to their otherwise fractious lives they find there is no incentive to put things right. This play addressees the problems of peer group pressure, bullying and the power struggle amongst teenagers.
