In 2002, an incredible manuscript was unearthed. Dated 1881, it was a record of the most spectacular, bizarre and eventful performance imaginable. This disturbingly wonderful document was immediately repaired by the loving, tender hands of Mr Anthony Neilson.
Headlong is proud to have secured the work for the nation, and humbly asks you to behold... The Amazing Feats of Loneliness.
Anthony Neilson is one of Britain's most acclaimed playwrights, creating pioneering, taboo-breaking new work in a bold and compassionate way.
Edward Gant's Amazing Feats of Loneliness is a strange and beautiful exploration of performance and performers, of sadness, mortality and wonder.
