MAD MAN SAD WOMAN

MAD MAN SAD WOMAN

The Space

20th June - 8th July 2017

Amidst the debris of a condemned house, two desperate strangers realise they have been abandoned by their friends. Fearful of what lies ahead, the two argue before starting to make a home from the surrounding junk.  But as the bulldozers move in, a choice lies ahead – accept their fate or cling on to hope.


Written by award-winning Chilean playwright Juan Radrigán, Mad Man Sad Woman gives voice to the voiceless; finding beauty, laughter, and dignity in the lives amongst the rubble. In a powerful new translation by Catherine Boyle, this timely UK premiere demands attention for those forced to live on the margins of our society.


After producing a workshop on this play in 2014, Head for Heights are proud to present this bold new production.
