Dennis Foon's plays, films, books, and television scripts have garnered awards throughout the world, including the British Theatre Award and the International Arts for Young Audiences Award. In Skud, four intense young men -- Tommy, Brad, Andy, and Shane -- are on four distinct paths as they struggle through their last year of high school and prepare for very different futures. Tommy, a model student, is headed for the military; Brad is looking at a hockey career; Andy, who has just secured an agent, may or may not break into the movies. These three have shared a common friendship that is challenged when Andy turns to a new kid -- Shane -- to teach him how to be a punk for an acting audition. While Andy is learning the code of rough, tough, and dangerous from Shane, Brad goads Tommy into a confrontation when Tommy suspects that Andy has stolen his girlfriend. As the foursome squares off, they face their individual demons and their most authentic selves. Can they stand up to the impending tragedy? Will they be able to move beyond it?
