Relive the '80s with 'punkplay'

punkplayemail.jpg

If you're looking for a play with live music, live animals, and a healthy dose of '80s nostalgia, punkplay might be the show for you. The coming-of-age tale is set in the American suburbia of thirty years ago, in the age the cold war, Ronald Reagan, and punk rock.

The play (by Gregory Moss) centers around two teenage boys, Mickey, a disaffected high school student, and Duck, an angry young runaway who befriends him. Their lives and relationship are changed by their exposure to a vinyl punk record.

This production of punkplay, from Capital T Theatre, is the regional premiere of the play. It's directed by Capital T artistic director Mark Pickell and stars Chase Brewer and Nate Jackson.

A warning from the folks at Capital T: This play contains nudity and mature language.

punkplay runs through June 28 at Hyde Park Theatre.

Mike is a features producer at KUT, where he’s been working since his days as an English major at the University of Texas. He produces Arts Eclectic, Get Involved, and the Sonic ID project, and also produces videos and cartoons for KUT.org. When pressed to do so, he’ll write short paragraphs about himself in the third person, but usually prefers not to.
