In Control is a lively physical, ensemble-style play about youth binge-drinking and party culture. Written in close consultation with an ensemble of year 10 drama students, the play boldly explores the risky, sometimes downright dangerous, ‘rite of passage’ aspects of the transition from child to adult.

The play is fast-moving, highly energetic, physical and visual in style. it is an ensemble piece, and highly variable in terms of cast size and gender.
