A youth offenders unit. 9 young offenders. One unsupervised hour.
Drama. Comedy. Tragedy. History.
Right! The plan - settle down, yeah, please - the plan is to use these weekly hour-long sessions to create - well - a show. A play.
Who gives a monkeys about us?
A play about a load of fucking teenage lags?
What would we call it, fuckin' 'Bad Bwoys'?
They done that movie, innit?
This is a play, fool!
ALL look at him.
Who the fuck you calling Screwface?
No-one. Everyone. All of us.
'Cause that's what they call us,, innit? Angry yout' them going round with their face all twisted up, like.
Exactly - And we're surrounded by screws the whole time.
And they're always in our face and that.
(giving JASON five)
Feelin' it, blood! Feelin' it!
If that's what them cunts out there are calling us, why we going along with it though?
All look at him.
'Ironic', what ho, Jeeves?
Ironic means like a slightly sarcastic joke.
You saying we're jokes?
I'm saying the title is a joke. I think it's excellent.
Oh, do you Jolly well think so, old chap? Top hole, what, what?
Who wants to see a play about a load of fucking losers in a nick anyway? Doing what?
I'm being ironic, innit? - Banged up in a cell for twenty hours a fucking day - where's the fucking play in that?
He's right, man - prison is fucking boring - they'll be asleep in five minutes.
Who's this play for anyway? Are people gonna come in and see it?
Dunno. They might do. It's mostly for other prisoners, I suppose.
Oh, well then!
Well, I was thinking it would be a play about how we got here in the first place. Our lives until now. I mean, in this wing, we're basically here for the same thing.
DELROY and KEIRAN have another little mock-fight.
Or manslaughter. But no two murders are the same. And no two murderers. We've all got different stories, yeah? Lets tell em. ...Cool?
