It's exam time and a clique of sixth formers hang out in their school library, preparing for their mock A Levels. The dysfunctional group journey through pre-exam stress discussing their first world problems. They struggle with their identity, questioning the status quo, while hoping to find their place in it. There's a fear of failure and being judged by intelligence alone, parental pressure to get straight A's and expectations of getting into university. These pressures combined with sleep deprivation, sexual frustration and troubling thoughts lead to a shocking climax in this acclaimed play. A raw young cast expose the violence simmering under the surface of achieving success in a blistering new play by Simon Stephens, writer of Pornography and the Olivier Award-winning On the Shore of the Wide World. Recommended age 14+Performers Nicholas Banks (Nicholas Chatman), Ed Franklin (Bennett Francis), Ruth Milne (Cissy Franks), Mike Noble (Chadwick Meade), Laura Pyper (Lilly Cahill), Rupert Simonian (William), Katie West (Tanya Gleason), Simon Wolfe (Dr Richard Harvey), Juliet Yorke..
