REVIEW: Punkplay, Southwark Playhouse ✭✭✭✭

Punkplay at Southwark Playhouse

Gregory S. Moss is an ingenious playwright who has created a sequence of tableaux, each of which can be understood as a ‘cover’ of a different musical ‘track’ on a personalised cassette tape, of the kind typically compiled for each other by friends in the long-lost 1980s. The scenes are, in fact, ‘riffs’ on actual recordings, and the anoraks amongst us (Hand up! – Guilty!) will have huge fun in tracing their origins, analysing the author’s creation as if it were the product of some Walmart T S Eliot.
