Headlong’s sixth season - a mix of world premieres, reworkings, short films and country wide participation - features provocative, constantly surprising theatre which addresses urgent questions about the way we live today with vitality, wit and theatrical intelligence. Uniting an eclectic group of theatre-makers with a common aim to challenge the limits of what theatre can achieve, this programme develops Headlong's commitment to touring the most ambitious theatre to audiences around the UK and across the world.
Headlong’s Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin directs Junkyard, a new musical by Jack Thorne with music by Stephen Warbeck. Emerging director Sam Pritchard directs a radical new production of Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. Headlong and leading writers from across the UK respond to Brexit with a series of short films in association with The Guardian.
This season also sees the birth of an ambitious new outreach project, Headlong Futures, in partnership with communities in Bristol, Kent, Durham and London.
Headlong’s season will be presented in collaboration with leading UK theatres where the plays receive their premieres.
