Rena is 17 and nothing gets to her. Not even when her parents kick her out and her older brother has to take her abroad with him.
In Uganda, at a school for ex-child soldiers, she meets Alice, a girl her own age who has seen and done worse than Rena ever did.
As friendship develops, so does the risk of betrayal. And even Alice is terrified of her mysterious 'uncle' and what he may reveal about her past.
A sharp, explosive new play about family, friendship and the fears that lie behind doing the right thing, "Bulletproof Soul" opens at The Door (Birmingham Rep) in March 2007.
