About the show
The plot of DNA by Dennis Kelly is explored using a mixture of short dramatised sequences, narration and talking head-style interviews with some of the key characters. The tale of the teenage gang who try to cover up a murder, and the effect it has on their relationships, is explained.
The characters remain in role in the interview-style sequences, commenting on the developing plot of the play and explaining their views on the events and their role in what has taken place.
The narrator explains the plot as some key moments are played out. The action sequences illustrate the three main settings through the use of symbolic elements designed to demonstrate the wood, the street and the field.
