The Girls (Stories from the PRU)
On the eve of the riots in Croydon, the Four sit on edge, tempted to join the unrest, in an empty room, awaiting yet another compulsory counselling session. They know nothing about each other, or of the circumstances that have brought them all into the room. Their only common bond: distrust and hatred. They have no desire to be there, and no respect for the educational system they believe has failed them. Painful truths are exposed, harsh views aired and tempers fly. What begins as a mundane counselling session leads to life changing events for all them. This compelling drama exposes the brutal truth of existence for many of our young people today. It also provides some insight to why levels of teenage knife and gun crime remain so high and the recent eruption of civil unrest.
