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?

Gun to your Head is the highly-anticipated full-length stage premiere by writer Simon Jaggers, ‘‘a visionary from England’s wastelands. A poet finding beauty in the broken. Gun to your Head is a celebration of a play. Like a Disco Pigs for England’s ghost hours. It’s so beautiful it’s actually ludicrous.’ (Simon Stephens, playwright)
