Exhilarating punk and pro-choice story of one woman's personal revolution
Jess is turning 30 when she presses pause on the conventional life she's been living and joins a post-punk band.
Sure, some might argue that punk is dead, others could say she should really stick to the day job, but the resounding concern is: shouldn’t she be settling down by now?
From behind her drum kit, warming up for her very first gig, Jess lurches defiantly into an unknown future.
From writer Lydia Rynne (Soho Theatre Writer Alumnus, NFTS Odeon Scholar and Creative England’s Funny Girls finalist), director Kay Michael (JMK Directors Award and Old Vic 12 Finalist) and musical consultant Fay Milton, drummer of Mercury Award Nominated band Savages, comes HEAR ME HOWL, a bitingly honest portrayal of one woman’s personal revolution.
The play is a moving but hilarious late coming-of-age story, of a woman suddenly questioning the social expectations of her prescribed gender, all whilst throwing herself defiantly into the noise and politics of post-punk, joining a band and playing an instrument for the first time.
