“I still exist don’t I?”

Plymouth, 2020. Stranded somewhere between an ageing artist’s romanticised view of her past and a boat full of strangers fighting to take back control of their future, Acts of Resistance: 50º Lost is a tale of chaos in a sea of uncertainty. Bound by a common cause but divided by opinion, will this voyage stand for national pride or will it back a binary Britain?

Headlong Futures is a bold and ambitious project which brings together four distinctive communities across England, creating four unique stories.

The UK is in turmoil. The zeitgeist is one of division and defiance. Headlong Futures is a response to this confusion. Headlong has worked with Theatre Royal Plymouth and the local community, exploring how we can work together across generations, across backgrounds and across the nation.

Revealing stories from communities that uncover the fractures within our country, Headlong Futures has worked with Bristol Old Vic, New Perspectives (East Midlands), Theatre Royal Plymouth and Brewery Arts Centre (Kendal) to create four local shows. Over the next 6 months, Headlong Theatre and writer Stef Smith will take these shows and fuse them into one larger play which will be presented in early 2019.
