Terriers

T1528901380
What do you do when you're fifteen and live on an estate where you get street cred for being in a gang? What do you do when you've got the chance of a decent future but the pull of the gang is too strong? And what are you gonna do when one of the gang passes you a gun and tells you, honour is at stake; use the gun to show you're one of us? Terriers is a play, which deals with these problems. Aldo is bright, witty, and a gifted sportsman. His family has high hopes for him, but he's having a tough time trying to break away from his mates who want him to be in his local gang, The Terriers. Not that he's too scared to join, but they are involved in a tit for tat gang war with a crew just across the avenue called The DH Crew. Terriers explore the immense pressure Aldo, and boys like him, are under from gang mates and his girlfriend. The play throws up the moral dilemmas and life changing decisions that some young boys and girls have to make.
