Punk Rock @ The Lyric

punk rock

Punk Rock – a play written by Simon Stephens and directed by Selina Cartmell – comes to Belfast’s Lyric Theatre for a stint, from August 10 until September 6.

Set amongst a clique of sixth formers during exam time in a library as they prepare for mock A levels, Punk Rock sees the typically dysfunctional group discuss their pre-university problems and struggles with personal identity.

Writer Simon Stevens has been heralded as the most prolific British playwright of his generation, and the likes of The Independent and The Guardian have given the play positive reviews. You can check out the Lyric’s interview with Stephens here.

Tickets are available from the Lyric Theatre’s Ticketsolve at 7.45pm with several 2.30pm matinee showings. Tickets are priced from £10.
