Punk Rockfollows the story of seven sixth-formers in Great Britain as they face up to the pressures of teenage life, while preparing for their mock A-levels and trying to get into Oxbridge. They are a group of educated, intelligent and aspiring young people but step-by-step, the dislocation, disjunction and anger simmering under the surface is revealed in an act of school violence. (Despite the title Punk Rock is NOT a musical!) Zeitgeist Stage selected Punk Rock to be part of our season last summer, prior to recent tragic events. Our hope is to continue the dialogue with this production which will feature audience talkbacks following every performance.
