  • Philanthropic support from individuals is integral to the future of Headlong. We just can’t do it without you.

    So whether you become a hedonist or simply donate, your support positively impacts on our work in a number of key ways.

  • HAVE AN IMPACT ON ARTISTS

    Headlong is actively committed to mentoring the next generation of theatre directors and writers. Our belief is that the sector should have a diverse pool of artists who are ready to make bold work with contemporary relevance.

    Those we have supported in the past include: directors Simon Godwin (The Winter’s Tale), Robert Icke (1984) and Lyndsey Turner (Chimerica) and playwrights: Lucy Prebble (Enron and The Effect), Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica) and Mike Bartlett (Earthquakes in London).

    Your support will nurture emerging artists whose work challenges and reflects the concerns and experiences of people across the country.

  • DELIVER OUR WORK TO AUDIENCES

    As a touring company, we take our work nationwide and we aim to keep ticket prices low (averaging £12 per ticket in 2014-15) so that our work is accessible to all.

    In addition, our work on stage is accompanied by an exceptional digital programme. With each production, we generate creative and engaging digital work that responds to its content, augmenting the audience’s experience online whilst also reaching those unable to see the work in person.

    Your donation will help us to continue to engage hundreds of thousands of people each year, in person and via our digital platforms.

  • INCREASE THE THEATRICAL CANON

    Plays developed by Headlong go on to be performed and studied all over the world.

    For instance, Enron, commissioned in 2008, went on to have productions in the West End and Broadway, and became an A-level set text last year.

    Many theatres are no longer able to commission as much new work but Headlong continues to commission four or five new projects every year.

    Your support will help us to commission the next generation’s stand out plays, ensuring they reach wide and growing audiences.

  • NOURISH AND ADVANCE THE THEATRE SECTOR

    By achieving significant reach with both audiences and artists, we help to nourish the UK’s cultural sector. A nimble organisation, we form a bridge between London and the regions; between the subsidised theatre sector and the West End; and between the many different organisations and sectors that we work with. A generation of artists and leaders have trained with us and have gone on to run institutions around the country. Through your support, you will help us to continue to play our part in a vibrant and successful UK cultural sector.
