When all communications are lost with an offshore privately run youth correction facility, two educational inspectors head off to work out what has happened. They get more than they bargained for in this tale which explores big issues for young people.
Sent to the island for "behaviour modification", some of the pupils have staged a rebellion sparked by a singular dramatic event, while others simply wanted to keep their heads down and leave after they have gone through "the programme".
This text will spark not only strong performances from teenagers, but also debates about the rights and wrongs in the script -- it will see readers and performers asking the question "what would I have done"?

This version of Hope Springs is the original, for older young actors; it doesn't shy away from some of the darker issues and themes inspired by the story. View page

This version is adapted for younger actors; it touches on some big themes but addresses them more obliquely than the more hard-hitting original. View page
