PUNK AND PRO – CHOICE
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, NFTS Odeon Scholar, Sundance Ignite and iShorts/Funny Girls finalist), director Kay Michael (JMK Directors Award Finalist) & producer Caley Powell of Lights Down Productions comes HEAR ME HOWL, a bitingly honest portrayal of one woman’s personal revolution.
Starring Alice Pitt-Carter (nominated for Best Lead Actress at the International Film Festival 2016) and with Fay Milton drummer of Mercury Award nominated post-punk band Savages as musical consultant, HEAR ME HOWL addresses the taboo issues of a woman's choice to remain childfree.
Hear Me Howl premieres after a sold-out work-in-progress run at The Landor Space in March and The Plymouth Fringe in May.
