Abstract: Kevin and his friend Ronan make a decision one New Year's Eve that has consequences neither of them can imagine. Written using the documentary style with particular reference to Theatre of Testimony, a form of theatre which fuses real people’s words with intimate storytelling, Under Pressure reminds us that driving brings with it a responsibility both to ourselves and to others that we should never forget. Sometimes when under pressure the choices we make affect not only our own lives but the lives of others forever.
