My 2018 production of DNA with the National Youth Theatre. Performed at the Southwark Playhouse in May 2018. Following the success of the sell-out 2017 production the production was remounted and redesigned for a new space, crew and cast. 

DNA is a moral tug of war between actions and their consequences. A group of teenagers try to bury a dark secret in the forest. The group needs someone to take charge, but who can they trust?

The production was also accompanied by DNA workshops for schools studying the play. Please contact me if you would like to enquire about one for your school. Below is a video which talks about the set for this production of DNA.
