Heady Conduct simply means ‘exhilarating behaviour’. We make potent and intoxicating theatre, mixing styles and genres to create an explosive style of storytelling.
We have worked with many people from different theatrical backgrounds and this inspires us to find new ways to capture the imaginations and hearts of our audiences and make theatre using timeless and universal stories.
We want to create opportunities for young and talented people, and support actors and artists into employment.
In September 2015 we performed our first show as a new company, RECKLESS, at The Rose Playhouse, the first theatre in Southwark. The Rose Playhouse was hosting new, innovative work 400 years ago and we were proud to continue the tradition with RECKLESS. Our debut show received critical acclaim and the company was invited back in 2016 to perform Measure for Measure, as part of Shakespeare 500. The show was a success with audiences and critics and the company has grown since.
