Drama on stage
Storrs - posted Mar, 12 2013
STORRS- Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) will present "Punk Rock," by Simon Stephens, March 28 through April 7, in the Studio Theatre on the Storrs campus. Punk Rock will appear on the CRT Studio stage at a particularly relevant time. As lawmakers contemplate, and in some cases enact, gun control laws in the wake of multiple major crises, playwright Simon Stephens’ play (written in 2009) peels back the layers of the teenage psyche for a deeper look into the complexities that may cause someone to break. Mr. Stephens, an award-winning English playwright characterized as part of the “in-yer-face” generation, artfully weaves the highly politically charged issue of gun control with a rich portrayal of the turbulence of adolescence.
