A Told by an Idiot and Theatre Royal Plymouth Production
Heads Will Roll – A savage folly based on the myth of El Dorado
A golden man wades into a lake and disappears, searching for forgiveness
A BBC TV executive flushes money down the toilet in her desperate quest for soap opera ratings
A Spanish conquistador crashes through the South American jungle convinced he will find a city where rivers run with gold
This new show from the insatiably curious Told by an Idiot is a dark epic comedy about delusion, vanity, and the corruption of power. Inspired by the historic search for El Dorado – the mythical city where rivers ran with gold – Heads Will Roll explores the quests we carry throughout our lives, even if our goals are out of reach.
With live music from one of Barcelona’s most unique musicians and an international cast, Heads Will Roll continues Told by an Idiot’s journey of creating the unexpected since 1993.
