When I get out. Like… to the picture I’ve got in my head. Be like meeting him all over again. Be a whole new start.” Instead of GCSEs, Cain, Riyad and Jonjo got sentences. Locked up in a young offenders’ institution, they trade sweets, chat shit, kill time – and await fatherhood. Grace’s job is to turn these teenagers into parents, ready to take charge of their futures. But can they grow up quickly enough to escape the system?
“Astonishingly brilliant…one of the best debut plays I have ever seen”
