Headlong 2012 season features American Psycho musical

Headlong artistic director Rupert Goold has announced the touring company’s 2012 season of work, including a new stage musical version of the novel American Psycho.

Goold will himself direct American Psycho, based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, which will have music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik and a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

The season also features new plays by Ella Hickson, Lucy Prebble, Mike Barltett and Lucy Kirkwood. Hickson’s Boys will be directed by Robert Icke and will run at the HighTide Festival next month, followed by The Nuffield Southampton and Soho Theatre.

Prebble’s new work The Effect will be directed by Goold and is a co-production with the National Theatre, where it will run from November. Kirkwood’s play is called Chimerica, with full details yet to be announced, while Bartlett has written a new version of Euripides’ Medea, which he will also direct. It is a co-production with Glasgow Citizens Theatre and Watford Palace Theatre in association with Warwick Arts Centre.

Full dates and casting for the season has yet to be announced.
