Junkyard - Rehearsal Diary

I can’t believe how quickly these last few weeks have flown by. It feels like only yesterday when we all met for the first time at the meet and greet and now here we are. We have a show on our hands people! :)

Common

Common, a world premiere by DC Moore, will be directed by Jeremy Herrin in the Olivier Theatre.

In the early days of the Industrial Revolution, the common land of England is under threat. An epic new history play by DC Moore co-produced with the National Theatre.

Mary’s the best liar, rogue, thief and faker in this whole septic isle. And now she’s back

As the factory smoke of the industrial revolution belches out from the cities Mary is swept up in the battle for her former home. The common land, belonging to all, is disappearing.

DC Moore’s dark and funny new play is an epic tale of unsavoury action and England’s lost land.

Headlong’s Artistic Director, Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things, This House) directs Anne-Marie Duff as Mary.

THE HOUSE THEY GREW Up In

The present day. A residential street in South East London. The house where reclusive siblings Peppy and Daniel were born is now stuffed full of everything they have ever owned. This hoard, their eccentric appearance and rampant garden hedge, set them conspicuously apart from others on their road.

The House They Grew Up In is a tender, dark and funny look at a co-dependent relationship between a brother and a sister, and how they cope when the world bursts in on them. It explores how, in an age of anxiety, we live alongside those different to us.

Deborah Bruce’s first play was Godchild (Hampstead 2013); her second, The Distance, premiered at the Orange Tree Theatre and was revived there and in Sheffield in 2015 and nominated for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

Artistic Director of Headlong Jeremy Herrin returns to Chichester.

Pygmalion

One flower girl. Two experts. Free lessons. Six months. Duchess required.

Over one hundred years after it was written, a radical new co-production explores one of the most celebrated comedies of the 20th Century, Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.

‘The science of speech. That’s my profession. I can place any man within six miles. I can place him within two miles in London. Sometimes within two streets.’

Witness the transformation of Eliza Doolittle in a world where we can be digitally altered within seconds. Through video and sound technology, director Sam Pritchard’s fearless new staging interrogates class identity and social mobility in Britain today and asks us - how much do our voices still define who we are?

People, Places & Things UK Tour

Following a critically-acclaimed, sold-out season at the National Theatre and in London's West End, People, Places & Things will tour the UK this autumn with a new cast to be announced.

Written by Duncan Macmillan (1984, Every Brilliant Thing, Lungs) and directed by Headlong Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin, People, Places and Things is designed by Olivier and Tony Award winning designer Bunny Christie (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.)

Emma was having the time of her life. Now she's in rehab.

Her first step is to admit that she has a problem. But the problem isn't with Emma, it's with everything else. She needs to tell the truth. But she's smart enough to know that there's no such thing.

When intoxication feels like the only way to survive the modern world, how can she ever sober up?

Digital Artist 2016

Headlong is delighted to announce that Chloe Mashiter has won Headlong’s Digital Artist Award.

Chloe will be working alongside the company’s creatives to design an audio game that explores our personal responsibility towards victims of conflict.

Brexit Films

Headlong and the Guardian newspaper have joined forces to interrogate the Brexit vote. In a series of short films to be broadcast on the Guardian website, leading theatre voices from across the UK will look at both sides of the argument to find out what happened, why and what the consequences could be?

The Brexit vote was the single most significant event in UK politics since WW2. In a deeply divided nation how does such disparity of views affect ideas of community, values and aspirations. How will this political revolution reshape politics in Britain?

The short films will be produced by Headlong and the Guardian and released through the Guardian website.
