Director Sarah Frankcom
UK Tour
Punk Rock is set in a Stockport grammar school. The stage is a dank, dusty library. The pupils are precocious middle-class 17-year-olds whose banter, by turns funny, insightful and cruel, fuel the volatile environment that they inhabit.

Punk Rock

An excellent Edward Franklin alternates between character assassination and debonair foppishness. Matilda Battersby
The Independent

Edward Franklin's Bennett Francis, with his vicious bullying slang, self-consciously parodies a long line of schoolboy rotters. Lyn Gardner
The Guardian

Stephens's play is performed with terrific commitment by a fine young cast, with Edward Franklin threatening to steal the show as troubled bully Bennett.
