The way the kids play around is exactly how they are at a real school. It was interesting to watch a play and be looking up to the stage. Although it is much more professional, it is like the kind of drama we do at my school.

It's really brilliant. It made me laugh and I liked the scene changes, how it moved between the present and the past. It was a really good story line. The actors' concentration was amazing, especially as they had to walk past the audience all the time.

It was very powerful, sad, and frightening. But what really stood out is just how modern it is. It's very real, you can recognise people from estates, or kids at school from the characters in this play. Thoroughly enjoyable, and very funny as well.

It's a fabulous play. I loved the direction, with the stage in the middle of the audience, the scaffolding and television put up high in the corner of the room and the simple, concrete stage. It's one of the best plays I have seen in a long time.
