Playwright(s): Simon Stephens
Members of The Howland Company
In the library of a fee-paying grammar school outside of Manchester, England, a group of hyper-intelligent seventeen-year-olds prepare for their final exams. As anxiety builds and hormones rage, the students must prepare for a future that seems uncertain – and survive the volatile rites-of-passage of an unstable world. A bubbling cauldron of fear, anger and self-loathing, PUNK ROCK is a painful reminder of the dormant violence that lurks in the shadows of any civilized society.
