Produced by 8 emerging directors, Headways festival presents a kaleidoscopic collection of plays. Each director tells a story to remind us that no clear lines are drawn when it comes to the path that lies ahead. Through plays that reflect the dynamism of relationships and human emotion, they promise to make you laugh and cry, dealing in both horror and wonder, and exploring the multiple truths that are held in a single story.
