About Gun to your Head

It’s summer and teenage runaways Dakota and Bede are hiding out in an abandoned quarry, buried deep in the belly of England. It’s a magical, frightening place, where youth tangles with death and dreams are forgotten. A razor-edged playground in which our tearaways can escape their past and imagine impossible futures. In this riotous punk-play of pop culture, games and reddit folklore, the stakes keep rising. Gun to your head… what could go wrong? From Simon Jaggers, a playwright from London. His plays have been performed at Theatre503, Soho Theatre, Bread & Roses, The Bunker and Southwark Playhouse. He has been personally mentored by award winning playwrights Simon Stephens and David Eldridge. Last year he won a place on The London Library Emerging Writers Programme 21/22 and this year his play Manifest Release Machine was longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize. He is also a songwriter/performer and spent his youth playing in punk bands supporting the likes of The Strokes, Babyshambles and Violent Femmes, and deejaying hip hop on pirate radio. Gun to your Head will be his full-length stage premier. Age Recommendation: 15+
