Chance by Yolan Noszkay follows Aaron, who's just been excluded from mainstream school and is being sent back to Sunnyside Pupil Referral Unit, a school for kids who've been excluded for disruptive behaviour. He lives in a Northern working-class community, in a run-down estate surrounded by hills – they are a respite for him and his childhood friend, Eva, who Aaron never ceases to amaze with the situations he finds himself in. Winner of Best Writing, Best Show, two Best Actor awards, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Directing at Durham Drama Festival 2023.
