Fifteen years after its first production Simon Stephens’ unflinching and incendiary play Herons returns to the London stage in this timely, new production directed by the Lyric’s Artistic Director Sean Holmes.

Shot through with humour and menace, Herons is a disturbing portrait of adolescent violence experienced by fourteen-year-old Billy, who is tormented by local bullies. Humiliated beyond endurance, he is finally pushed to an act of vengeance.

Herons is both a portrayal of brutalised no-hopers and a witty hymn for hope.
