Made possible through Arts Council England funding ‘heath’, our brand-new production will premier in Dorset this autumn with performances at Pavilion Dance SW, Lighthouse and Bridport Arts Centre.

Heath departs from Vita Nova’s usual educational theatre work in schools and treatment centres. It is an adult play for a smaller cast, yet still exploring issues around addiction. Taking inspiration from Shakespeare’s King Lear, and the notion of losing everything to discover the truth about yourself, ‘heath’ echoes the trauma induced via addiction and how for some, it is only when they reach their ‘rock bottom,’ and their lowest ebb, that they begin to see the insanity of drug and alcohol misuse.
