In a private school outside of Manchester, England a group of highly-articulate seventeen year-olds flirt and posture their way through the day while preparing for their A-Level mock exams. With hormones raging and minimal adult supervision, nothing can mask the underlying tension that becomes increasingly pronounced as the clock ticks towards the ultimate dismissal.

Inspired by playwright Simon Stephens' own experiences as a teacher, Punk Rock is an unnerving chronicle of contemporary adolescence at the breaking point. Stephens is currently represented on Broadway by the Olivier Award-winning The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time now playing at the Barrymore Theatre.

All performances of Punk Rock will offer $30 Under 30 seating, with Rush seats available two hours prior to each curtain, pending availability, for $30 to patrons 29 years old or younger on the day of the performance. Advanced $30 Under 30 seating is also offered online for each performance, with tickets available for pick-up at will call with valid ID. One ticket per ID. No exceptions. Additionally, $20 Student Rush tickets for full-time high school and college students, 20 minutes before curtain (cash only) with valid ID. General tickets are $69-$125 and are available by visiting or calling 212-352-3101.

The 2014-15 MCC Theater Main Stage Season will also feature: the New York premiere of Jennifer Haley's The Nether, winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize to be directed by Anne Kauffman (February 4-March 15, 2015); and the world premiere of Permission, the latest work by Hand to God playwright Robert Askins (April 29-June 7, 2015).
