Why See Heathers The Musical?
She's my best friend. God I hate her
So very! Heathers The Musical will transfer to the West End this autumn for a limited 12 week run after a sell-out engagement at the Other Palace. An uproarious and joyous adaptation of the 1988 cult-classic, this is a high school musical with a difference. Carrie Hope Fletcher will reprise her role as Veronica, with the rest of the cast tba. So grab your scrunchies and croquet mallets, this is one you really don't want to miss!
Dear Diary, my teen angst has a body count - the story of Heathers
Heathers is the story of Veronica Saywer and her inner turmoil as she traverses a high school ruled over by an intimating trio of scrunchie loving dictators - the Heathers. Consisting of Heather Chandler, Heather McNamara and Heather Duke, they stalk the halls of Westerburg High with an iron fist, verbally and mentally destroying anyone who gets in the way of their carefully guarded hierarchy.
But when the mysterious JD comes to class, Veronica may have found herself an ally in her hatred - albeit one with murder on his mind. Pitch-black and raucously funny, its a no-holds-barred look at the social strata of high school and the fate of anyone who might rally against it.
With a raft of songs including the infectious 'Candy Store', 'Dead Girl Walking', 'My Dead Gay Son' and many more, this bonkers adaptation will have you rolling in the aisles as Veronica steps up to defeat the Heathers once and for all.

This bracingly clever, bleakly funny play offers no easy answers to any of its questions: what is justice, what is vengeance, and which is right?
Until Jul 22, 2018
the spirit of music hall lives on - along with the spirits of doomed romance and wartime cinema, clipped vowels and buttoned-up exteriors, puppetry and Rachmaninov piano concertos - in this unstoppably entertaining exhumation of Emma Rice's greatest hit.
