PUNK ROCK by Simon Stephens

Where: Crow’s Theatre, Streetcar Crowsnest

About: “I feel like I’m earthed. Here. And watch what happens if I let go.”
In the library of a fee-paying grammar school outside of Manchester, England, a group of hyper-intelligent seventeen-year-olds prepare for their final exams. As anxiety builds and hormones rage, the students must prepare for a future that seems uncertain – and survive the volatile rites-of-passage of an unstable world.

Howland Company Workshops:

We’ve had the pleasure of working with some fantastic Toronto theatre professionals over the last few years. We explored actor/director Ker Well‘s powerful movement-based performance methods, Second City’s Katherine Ashby led us through a side-splitting day of actor’s improv, and we’re currently working as script developer lab-rats with director and performance creator Philip McKee as well as with Toronto playwright Susanna Fournier.

Over the past few years, we have been joined by Holger Schott Syme: Chair – Department of English and Drama, at the University of Toronto Mississauga, working on an exciting new translation of Ödön von Horváth’s Casimir and Caroline which culminated in a staged workshop presentation last Fall at the University of Toronto’s Luella Massey Studio Theatre. We are currently developing the script further and will announce plans for a full production in the future. There was also a reading with The Howland Company of the new performance text in development by Fournier, take rimbaud. We workshopped the piece as part of our RBC Emerging Theatre Company Residency at Canadian Stage last Spring with a public showing.
