  4. Headlong New Season of Work for 2023

Headlong brings an exciting programme of innovative new writing and reimagined classics with award-winning artists and bold new voices.

A View from the Bridge

Headlong will present a striking new revival of Arthur Miller’s visceral and compelling masterpiece directed by Jaz Woodcock-Stewart. It follows Beatrice and Eddie Carbone who have built an all-American life in Brooklyn. When wife and husband take in their relations, two hard-working Sicilian immigrants, the family should pull together. Instead, everything starts to unravel. The production will premiere at the Octagon Theatre Bolton (8 - 30 September) before transferring to Chichester Festival Theatre (9 - 23 October) and Rose Theatre (31 October - 11 November).

Kimber Lee’s untitled f*ck m*ss s**gon play

A  sharply-comic play which explores identity, invisibility and misrepresentation, directed by Roy Alexander Weise and designed by Moi Tran. The production will open at the Royal Exchange Theatre (24 June - 22 July) as part of Manchester International Festival before transferring to the Young Vic later this autumn (18 September - 4 November).

Miranda Rose Hall’s A Play for the Living in a Time of Extinction

An innovative one woman show that takes us on a life-changing journey to confront the urgent ecological disaster that is unfolding around us. Eliminating the need for physical travel, this will be the first off-grid tour of its kind in the UK, with every performance powered by renewable bicycle technology. Headlong will present the play at venues throughout the country where a different team of local theatre makers will mount the production following guidelines created by director Katie Mitchell. A Play for the Living will open at the Barbican, London (26 - 29 April), starring Lydia West in her stage debut, directed by Katie Mitchell with design by Moi Tran. Further casting and creative teams for each of the venues to be announced.
