Two boys, aged 13 and 15, are charged with manslaughter after kicking rocks off a freeway overpass and killing a motorist.

Based on a true story, The Stones is about risk taking behaviour and the pain of guilt when things go too far. The play places the audience
in the position of a jury where they must consider whether the boys are responsible for their actions, or too young to know what they were doing.
