On Tuesday 30 March 2004 WYD presented the Irish premiere of this play by the award-winning young Italian writer Letizia Russo.

Dead End is a daring look at contemporary youth culture, exploring issues such as identity, religion, power, sex and drugs. The play tells the story of a group of young people who live in an unreal, isolated community whose rules strangely parallel those of the real world.

In the early nineties JENNIE GRANGEL studied drama in Dublin, where she then set up her own drama school, the ABC School of Drama, which worked with inner city youth projects. She then returned to her native New Ross, where she currently lives with her two children, Sadhbh and Rian. For the past four years, she's been a drama tutor with WYD.

She was assistant director to Scott Johnston (Land of Stuff, 2001) and director of Fair Play, Foul Play (2002) and numerous in-house productions including A Midsummer Night's Dream and Dreamcatchers, all for WYD.
