Lou is a pessimistic girl who constantly believes that she and her friends are right on the precipice of being caught and exposed for their role in Adam’s supposed death.Matthew also has extensive experience at a senior level with several exam boards, and was responsible for writing one of the reformed GCSE qualifications in Drama. With featured activities for group study and independent work, they are versatile and valuable to students and teachers alike. The main themes of the play are bullying, gang membership, social responsibility, morality and leadership. Richard clearly has a good measure of clout and social status, but by the end of the play, he’s become less interested in controlling his group of friends than in understanding the world and his place within it. This is hard work, and means that the students need not only to know how they would direct the whole play in depth, but that they must know it off by heart.

JOHN TATE: So if me and Richard are mates now, which we are and all that silliness is over, which it is, and you’re on someone’s side, Danny, then you’re on your own side, which is very, well, to be honest, very silly and dangerous. Phil retorts that if everyone already thinks Adam is dead, it doesn’t make a difference if they kill him “again. Each book also includes a comprehensive Skills and Practice section, which provides detailed advice on assessment and a bank of exam-style questions and annotated sample student answers. The aim of this scheme is to approach the play in a simple way to ensure that students can answer questions to the best of their ability and access top band. JOHN TATE: situation, but it’s not, because actually what you are saying is a very negative, and that’s.Several contemporary plays by both British and American playwrights channel the same anxieties about bullying, peer pressure, and teen violence that DNA does. In Part Four, Mark and Jan discuss Leah’s disappearance—they haven’t seen her in a long time and have heard rumors she’s switched schools. The verbose, anxious, existential Leah and the silent, constantly snacking Phil follow Mark and Jan to a small woodland area where they all meet up with Lou, John Tate, and Danny.

A Chimp will find itself on the outside of a group and before he knows it he's been hounded to death by the others. Enzymatic DNA Synthesis (EDS) offers significant advantages in accessibility and convenience, transforming the pace of and control over custom DNA oligo production, with reduced environmental impact over traditional outsourced, chemical-based synthesis. Richard describes a “big wind of [dandelion] fluff” he saw earlier that day and says it made him think about life on other planets and the purpose of existence.The course materials are meant to provide a common curriculum for students across Britain, but DNA serves a dual purpose by warning young people of the dangers of bullying, peer pressure, and groupthink.

Enda Walsh’s Chatroom concerns a group of British teens who join a chatroom and find that the conversation takes a dark turn, with peer pressure and bullying bleeding through their screens and into their lives. The plot of DNA by Dennis Kelly is explored using a mixture of short dramatised sequences, narration and talking head-style interviews with some of the key characters. She has co-written Jean Genet (with David Bradby, 2011), and co-edited Genet: Performance and Politics (2006) and Contemporary French Theatre and Performance (2011). Mark and Jan’s vague, gossipy conversations act as preludes during each part of the play, opening the action in a disorienting and intriguing way.Mark, like Jan, enjoys creating and discussing drama and conflict—but he doesn’t want to accept his role in sowing discord and division within the group when faced with the fallout of their collective actions. My advice for using these notes is to read through the play a scene at a time,then read the appropriate section of the notes and try to answer the questionsand not any supporting quotations. The characters remain in role in the interview-style sequences, commenting on the events of the play and explaining their views on the events and their role in what has taken place. Kelly later graduated from Goldsmiths College at the University of London with a First Class Honours degree in Drama and Theatre Arts.
