In 1994 the Criminal Justice Act effectively outlawed raves, banning public gatherings around amplified music characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats.’ Featuring a banging soundtrack and psychedelic 90s-inspired visuals, Beats tells the story of Johnno McCreadie, a teenager living in a small suburban Scottish town at the time of the Act. Beats is an award-winning play by Kieran Hurley; a coming-of-age story exploring rebellion, apathy, and the irresistible power of gathered youth.

Advisory: Themes of drug misuse, scenes of violence and strong language. Not suitable for people under 12 years of age
