PUNK ROCK by Simon Stephens
William Carlisle. The world at his feet. Its weight on his shoulders.Intelligent. Articulate. F*cked.
Stephens describes his play as 'The History Boys on crack'. It explores the underlying tensions and potential violence in a group of affluent, articulate seventeen year old students.
The end of term is fast approaching and an uncertain future waits just around the corner. But for this group of sixth-formers the journey into adulthood is not an easy one. Contemporary and unnerving, this explosive play from the award-winning Simon Stephens, follows the story of seven sixth-formers preparing for their final exams. But even these affluent and intelligent protagonists cannot escape the underlying pressures of adolescence and as their sheltered world shatters around them, the brutal reality of their fate is revealed.
