Headlong, the U.K. touring company of which Rupert Goold is artistic director, has announced a slate of five world premieres, including The Effect, a new play by Lucy Prebble whose Enron Goold previously directed for the company in a production that subsequently went to the West End and briefly to Broadway; and American Psycho, a musical based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis that will feature a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening).
Goold will himself direct The Effect (co-produced with the National Theatre, where it will begin performances in November) and American Psycho, co-produced with Act 4 Entertainment and The Collective.
Also on Headlong's upcoming slate are the premieres of Ella Hickson's comedy Boys, to be directed by Robert Icke for a co-production with HighTide Festival Theatre and the Nuffield, Southampton; Medea in a new version written and directed by Mike Bartlett, who previously worked with Headlong on the premiere of Earthquakes in London, that will be co-produced with Glasgow Citizens Theatre and Watford Palace for a UK tour in autumn 2012; and Lucy Kirkwood's Chimerica.
