Mickey, a disaffected high schooler, is befriended by a confused and angry runaway named Duck. Trapped in a suburban wasteland, the two boys come across a vinyl record that upends their adolescent existence. When Duck and Mickey discover “punk” it’s like nothing they have ever heard. It’s fast – it’s alive – it’s the end of music.
punkplay is a mixtape tribute to the history of America in the 1980s, an idiosyncratic genealogy of punk rock music, and a personal narrative of coming of age in the shadow of the cold war. Gregory Moss’ punkplay is funny, engaging, thoughtful, and for those of us who are old enough, a little nostalgic.
Cap T is proud to present the regional premiere of punkplay directed and designed by 2 time Austin Critics Table Awards and B. Iden Payne award winning director Mark Pickell (Killer Joe, Lieutenant of Inishmore). The play stars Chase Brewer, Nate Jackson, Uyen-Anh Dang, Rebecca Pearcy and David Higgins.
Cast: Mickey - Chase Brewer; Duck - Nate Jackson; Sue Giki – Uyen-Anh Dang; Ines/Reagan – Rebecca Pearcy; Marcel/Jack Sawtelle – David Higgins
