London’s Other Palace Theatre will stage five work-in-progress presentations of Heathers The Musical May 30–June 3. The musical will be staged with minimal sets and costumes as part of a development workshop that is partly open to the public.

Based on the cult 1988 film of the same name, Heathers is adapted for the stage by Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy) and Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives). The story follows two teens who plot to kill the popular girls at their high school and put an end to their cruel bullying.

After an L.A. tryout, the musical debuted Off-Broadway at New World Stages in 2014, followed by a New York regional premiere at the White Plains Performing Arts Center in 2016.
