OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
RU is told through the eyes of four gloriously reckless young people who can’t help but say the unsayable and do the undoable.
Halil, Hanna, Jaden and Belle are four very different 15 year-olds, with one thing in common. They’ve all been perm’d. Now, teetering on the edge of the education system, they’re negotiating Year 10 together, at their local PRU.
PRU’s authenticity comes from the writers’ and directors’ experience of working closely with young people in PRUs across London, over a period of years.
Belle - Pia Somersby
Halil - Jaye Ersavas
Jaeden - Michael ‘MBants’ Boahen
Hanna - Kosar Ali
Jean - Kerry Godliman
Anthony - Tom Moutchi
Berdan - Umit Ulgen
