As the 1962 Cuban Missle Crisis unfolds and people begin to fear the worst, Barbara and Bernadette decide to mount their own school protest. Daring each other on, they take on the Establishment -- but not without cost to their friendship.

The cycle of young friendships and romance in Lime Lawn, Cork City, is unaffected by the arrival of new newighbors -- until the fear and brutality they live under begin to become apparent.

These two plays were specially commissioned by the Royal National Theatre for the BT National Connections Scheme for young people.
