Dakota of the White Flats is an adaptation 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-old 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 multigenerational audience, specifically 11-17-year-olds, this fast-paced and electrifying show celebrates the resilience, bravery and hope of young people in a changing world. Directed by Ella Becroft, with set design by John Verryt, lighting by Rachel Marlow and composition by Eden Mulholland, Dakota of the White Flats is not to be missed!
