A Grimm Punk Story – Play Reading: with dress up prizes and punk era projections

One night only. Memories leap into fantasy, nights of new music, some frights, and conversations go everywhere they desire with this brilliant all-female cast. It's part faerie tale, part facts, a poetic, spiky, twisty dream-scape, exposing trouble, mending wrongs. How do we recall our heyday, our teen times, and why?

Gasp at sudden moves and peculiar truths; puzzle, laugh, soar through the sky and beyond with inspiration. Punk after all, changed the world forever.

We so love punk, love youth's spirit, love startling fashion, furious dancing... A Grimm Punk Story – Play Reading - prizes for dress ups, and see punk era projections by Murray Cammick, up first.

Teenage Boy on Fire wishes for the moon, stars, better music, and answers; turns into Teenage Girl on Fire prowling her memories too. Where did punk start?

Have a say afterwards if you choose, kindly tell us what you think of this play.
