In March 2013 CYD presented two short plays exploring the relationships between young people.

Young, Wild & Free was devised and scripted by the younger members of CYD themselves, and explored what happens when two groups of young orphans become marooned on tropical islands, and their different approaches to survival.

Shut Up!, a play by Andrew Payne, was a gripping story about a teenage boy who stopped talking for no apparent reason. No amount of persuasion, nagging or therapy could get him talking again. The play revealed the reason for his silence and the secret he was afraid to talk about. Shut Up! was chosen, cast and directed by Ben Stoll, one of CYD’s senior members.
