KIERAN HURLEY – HEADS UP

Theatre |
22nd September 2017

Fri 22 Sep | Doors 7.45pm | £10

A city. Just like this. Right now. A teenage girl boils up in rage in a toilet cubicle. A finance worker preaches doom in a busy train station. An absurd coke-addled celebrity races through town on a mission. A paranoid stoner stares blankly at the endless disasters on the TV news. In just one moment, all their worlds will end.

Multi award-winner KIERAN HURLEY weaves a picture of a familiar city at its moment of destruction, asking what would we do if we found ourselves at the end of our world as we know it.

2016 The Scotsman FRINGE FIRST AWARD WINNER | 2017 CATS AWARD BEST PLAY NOMINEE

Directed by Julia Taudevin and Alex Swift. Music by Michael John McCarthy. Lighting by Malcolm Rogan. As part of the Made In Scotland showcase 2016.

‘Urgent, compelling, beautiful writing… confirms Hurley’s status as one of the most powerful writers to emerge in British theatre this decade’ ★★★★   The Scotsman

‘Excellent, hypnotic, apocalyptic solo show’ ★★★★   The Times

‘Hurley infuses this brilliant show with prophetic intensity and brooding soulfulness’ ★★★★   Evening Standard
