’The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’ is a new play by North Clare native Dermott Petty The play is set in North Clare in the late 1970’s where a teenagers discovery of Punk Rock turns his life upside down and causes consideration, shock and misunderstanding with his parents, his community and his friends.

In the village however there is only 1 Punk rockers. The one punk rocker in the village has notions of rebellion, grandeur and turning the world upside down.
The origins of the play began from a poem of Dermott Petty’s tilted ‘When Punk Rock Came to North Clare’ that was published by Revival Press in Limerick. The play will be directed by Joan O’Hanrahan and will be performed by Dermott Petty.
