A high-action punk noir that snatches the classic coming-of-age adventure story out of the hands of a range of boys, and passes it to two loud, unapologetic, brave young women.
Dakota of the White Flats is an adaption of the novel by award-winning author Philip Ridley. A high-action, pulpy, punk noir that snatches the classic coming-of-age adventure story out of the hands of a gang of boys, and passes it to two loud, unapologetic, brave young women.
Dakota Pink is 13-years-olf and afraid of nothing. She lives in a bleak housing complex on the edge of a polluted canal. Abandoned supermarket trolleys litter the streets and the oil slick water is filled with monstrous mutant eels. Dakota and her best friend Treacle discover a secret that propels them across the water to the Broken Glass Fortress on Dog Island. Dakota of the White Flats is a finely crafted adventure, shot through with comedy, horror, an immersive soundscape and live punk music.
Created for a multi general audience, specifically, 11-17-year-olds, this fast-paced and electrifying show celebrates the resilience, bravery and hope of young people in a challenging world.
