Nikki doesn’t think that her Dad is a racist, he just cares deeply about his community… But when an African family move in over the road, the dog won’t stop barking, the kids outside start throwing stones, and her Dad starts laying down the law.
One Saturday morning Emma and her little brother Jimmy get called into the living room for a talk with Mum and Dad. But something doesn’t feel right, Dad looks shifty and Mum is zoned out…then the bombshell drops. Mum and Dad are splitting up, Jimmy can’t contain his flow of tears, and Joanne kicks off – big time! How can home ever feel the same again?
It’s the Summer holidays and “Soft Jonny” starts hooking up with Joanne an older girl from two streets away. But after weeks of sneaking in and out of her bedroom he begins to realise that he wants to be more than just her booty call. Until one day she gives him some news that will change his life forever.
Originally performed in July 2014, HEADZ will tour both locally and nationally to venues this October, thanks to Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund.
There are also a number of closed performances in each area. If you are interested in your group coming to one of these please contact Laura Orchard, Strategic Touring Manager.
