    “I feel like I’m earthed. Here. And watch what happens if I let go.”

     

    In the library of a private 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 that threatens to destroy the adolescent fantasy, Punk Rock is a painful reminder of the dormant violence that lurks in the shadows of any civilized society.

    With recognition from both Canadian Stage and the Soulpepper Theatre Company, The Howland Company is best known for their 2014 Best of Toronto Fringe hit and three-time sold-out production of 52 PICK-UP. Since 2013, the company has developed and produced numerous projects including a new adaptation of Ödön von Horváth's Casimir and Caroline, Susanna Fournier’s new performance text take rimbaud, as well as an innovative and intimate production of The Glass Menagerie2018 marks their most ambitious year to date, kicking off with this Toronto Premiere of Punk Rock.
