We are delighted to be bringing Headlong Theatre to Worthing. One of the UK’s most acclaimed theatre producers, their shows have run to much acclaim across the West End and the country. This show starts at The Old Vic in London, before touring to the Connaught. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Headlong on tour!

Directed by Tinuke Craig (The Color Purple), August Wilson’s (FencesMa Rainey’s Black Bottom) groundbreaking modern classic explores the fragile bond between eight men as they live, love and work in a racially segregated, post-Vietnam America.

Immerse yourself in 1970s America with this dynamic and emotional drama.

Jitney follows a motley crew of unlicensed taxi drivers in Pittsburgh as they navigate their own individual lives, loves, losses and needs, but ultimately have to band together to save their station and their community in the face of gentrification. 

Powerful, fast paced, and full of tender moments Jitney is a wonderful character driven play that explores universal human themes we can all relate to.
