punkplay at Southwark Playhouse Little Space
Philippa Neels & Co will present the UK premiere of punkplay, by Gregory S. Moss, at the Southwark Playhouse 'Little Space', a fringe venue in south east London, from 7 September to 1 October 2016, with an official opening on 9 September.
The production will be directed by Tom Hughes, with set design by Cécile Tremolieres, lighting by Sarah Readman and sound by Benjamin Grant.
Synopsis: "There’s Duck and there's Mickey. They're the kids of America and it's the 80s apocalypse. They hate their parents and there's no point in algebra. They're grabbing at this thing called life: guitars, girls, love, fury, heartbreak and noise noise noise. Punk is their escape from suburbia and it's like nothing they have ever heard. It's fast - it's alive - it's already dead."
punkplay is described as "a coming-of-age story about subcultures, friendship and not-fitting-in - all on rollerskates."
