About this deal

As a parent of a teenage daughter I try to educate her in the dangers of drugs amongst other things but sometimes feel that I get the “Yeah Mum.

The fourth member of the excellent young ensemble, Alex Colley, tends to take the part of Dan, less prominent as Mark interviews the survivors.His plays are often outdated and tend to patronise young people, who are nowadays so much more savvy and streetwise. Sean Radford gives an outsider’s view of the events of that night as Jack who turned down drugs and – to his eternal shame – refused to ride in the ambulance. The Foundation has also funded and coordinated a professional tour of London schools, colleges and communities as a Theatre in Education production since 2017, recently attracting Arts Council funding for its fourth professional tour this Spring. The Scottish Government has acknowledged that drug education across the country is inconsistent and inadequate.

The National Youth Theatre’s Rep Company is celebrating its first ten years and Susan Elkin paid a visit to learn more. This powerful and emotionally-charged play, tells the true story of what happened to Dan, the choices he made and the impact on his family and friends – all told in their own words, from tragedy to redemption. Many schools lack the capacity, knowledge and skills needed to deliver drug education effectively without resources and support.

Drama is an incredibly powerful way to communicate important messages to young people, and Mark Wheeller’s play has become a core part of our vision to enable young people to understand the risks, and potential consequences and impact of experimenting with drugs. This book offers a unique and fulsome guide for teaching/studying this play and includes a detailed scheme of work for teachers using the play as a set text in the GCSE Drama examination.
