The Actors College of Theatre and Television (ACTT) Graduating class of 2014 present their final performance 'Punk Rock'. The dramatic piece is written by Dennis Kelly and the Theatrical production is directed by John O'Hare.
Punk Rock is a play by the British playwright Simon Stephens which premiered at the Royal Exchange Manchester in 2009 and transferred to the Lyric Hammersmith. The play follows a group of private school sixth formers.
In the library of a grammar school, seven sixth-formers are preparing for their mock-A Levels and nearing the end of their school lives. There are sex fueled sub-plots detailing the various love lines or triangles that emerge through the play.
Punk Rock explores the ecstasies and agonies of being a teenager in a contemporary High School. With an explosive plot twist that startles audiences and comes as a complete surprise, or does it?
