Punk Rock

We are very excited about embarking on a brand new collaboration with the University of Otago Theatre Studies programme for our next show, Punk Rock. This play will feature a raw young cast of seven actors, four of which are students from Theatre Studies. Six other students are undertaking internships in key departments at Fortune Theatre. 

Ferociously funny and unnerving, Punk Rock explores underlying jittery tensions, hormonal headiness and potential violence in a group of affluent seventeen-year-old students as they begin to plan for university and the rest of their lives. Find out more
