Gold Coast actors get away with murder in DNA

SOME of the Gold Coast’s finest young actors will keep audience on their toes when the acclaimed play DNA hits the stage at The Arts Centre Gold Coast from 2 to 4 October.

DNA follows of group of teenagers who do something bad… really bad… then panic and cover the whole thing up, using DNA to frame an innocent man.

Written by Dennis Kelly, the play deals with hard hitting issues, such as violence, guilt, accountability, pack mentality and unrequited love.


DNA is the performance outcome of this year’s Youth Theatre Project – a program that gives young local people the opportunity to work with a professional director – and features a cast of 11 actors aged 16 to 24.

The show is directed by Catarina Hebbard, who most recently directed Machina (La Boite Theatre Company) and The Pitch (Queensland Theatre Company).

‘DNA by Dennis Kelly interested me because of the moral dilemmas that the group face within the play and more intriguingly, how they deal with them,’ says Hebbard.
