You don't snitch - we all know the rules and we all know the consequences.
But what if your own future is at stake? What if there's a chance that an innocent person will go to jail? What if that person is your best friend?
Ethan faces an almost impossible personal dilemma that will test him like never before...
Pact by Clifford Oliver was sparked by the many discussions that followed performances of Arc Theatre's acclaimed production of Boy X - the story of the aftermath of the stabbing of a 16 year old. Violent crime and gangs continue as central themes in this piece, which enters the challenging and taboo area of 'snitching' and the walls of silence that can prevent identification and conviction of offenders.
Written by Clifford Oliver.
Directed by Carole Pluckrose.
