Dew Drop Drama Company

DNA – in the Frey Theater

Friday, April 14
Doors: 6:30pm // Show: 7pm

This performance runs approx. 60 minutes with no intermission. 

DNA is a one-act play being directed, performed, and designed by the St. Kate’s students of Dew Drop Drama Company, produced in collaboration with The O’Shaughnessy. The script, written by Dennis Kelly, starts when Mark and Jan who, in “just having a laugh”, cause Adam to fall by the grille and go missing – and they think he’s dead. The teens and their friends struggle with what to do, when Phil, an otherwise quiet and emotionless guy, devises a complicated plan to throw the police and public off their scent. However, their plan goes awry, and they accidentally frame an innocent mailman for the crime. The further they go to cover up their actions, the greater the strain on the group. The friends struggle over what’s more important: self preservation or truth and justice? The tone of the show mixes dark comedy and drama, and it includes strong language, mature themes (described and dramatized violence, described sexual harassment, drug use) and potential mild blood. DNA is appropriate for older audiences, roughly teen through adult.
