Play review - by Holly Barradell

5 May 2016

Holly came to the BRIT School première and writes about the unusual and incredible experience of sitting amongst the people whose words and story were being enacted on the stage, the friends and family of Dan. She writes, "This play has a message much bigger than the assumption 'drugs are bad'; it shows the power of friendship. trust. family and love and how one person's actions can have dire consequences on all of those." Holly ends by referring to the warning message that Leah Betts' death from ecstasy had in the 1990s and writes, "Daniel is sadly the 21st century reminder that drugs still destroy lives, and as a society we still need to drum home the message but this time it isn't with a headline life support photograph, it's in the form of this wonderful play - get it into your local community now!"
