Cast: 3 female, 3 male, 3 female/male (or 3 female and 3 male for GCSE).

"...drama that will stimulate and challenge a young cast dealing with vital issues that affect today's youngsters in a gentle and humane way and, in so doing, gets its message across wothout the instant rejection that can meet other approaches."
Barbara Godwin, Southern Daily Echo

"everybody seems to think that they know something about drug abuse… yet, the most frightening thing of all remains the disturbing attitude that drugs, like plane crashes, happen to somebody else."
Wayne Denfhy
