A group of teenagers do something bad, really bad, then panic and cover the whole thing up. But when they find that the cover up unites them and brings harmony to their once fractious lives, where's the incentive to put things right? A play that is often featured on the GCSE syllabus. CONTAINS SOME STRONG LANGUAGE.
