about punk rock

Seven young people, in full transit towards adult life, face the exams that will open the doors of the University and allow them to flee from the industrial suburb in which they have grown up. The pressure is maximum and everyone deals with it in their own way. Not everyone is prepared to bear it. 

Simon Stephens draws in PUNK ROCK an accurate portrait of today's youth, their worries and miseries, the educational ecosystem and the diffuse future that awaits them.

Simon Stephens (1971) is one of the most prolific European playwrights of his generation and one of the world's references in playwriting. Despite his youth, all his works have premiered in the great theaters of London.


BA in History from the University of York. He lived for a time in Scotland, specifically in Edinburgh. Before focusing on theater (he has written more than 30 plays), he went to secondary school and was also part of a punk group: Country Teasers, a Scottish band with different influences (from Joy Division to the poetry of Burroughs). that has marked him when carrying out his theatrical projects.


Simon is currently an artist associated with London's Lyric Hammersmith, where he premiered Punk Rock in 2009. He also wrote a drama project for Three Kingdoms , which was performed simultaneously in Estonia, the UK and Germany.


Simon has received numerous nominations and awards at various theater awards in the UK. He has won the Olivier Award for Best Playwriting on two occasions: the first for On the shore of the big wide world (2005) and the second for his stage adaptation of Mark Haddon's novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog at Midnight ( 2012). This production also won the award for best text at the 2015 Tony Awards.


Stephens currently resides in London with his wife and three children. In his own words, the author tries to create a "less elitist" theater that reaches everyone equally, trying to get away from the danger of falling into repetition, always staying stimulated.
