Who says young people don’t care?

When their friends and classmates are deported, repatriated, shipped out and sent away the students of Ireland organise a nationwide take over of their schools.

Locked inside they realise that they also have to contend with each other and discover that navigating the politics of school and being a teenager might be harder than fighting the power.

Dublin Youth Theatre presents a specially commissioned darkly comic play set in the near future. Written by emerging writer Emmet Kirwan (Sarah & Steve, RTE 2), Half 3 Heroes deals with teenage issues and the big problems of being young, as well as some smaller political ones that are bigger than they seem.

Suitable ages 14+. Contains some strong language.
