Headland is a small group of creatives that shift and change from project to project but with three key creative leaders:
Pat Ashworth is a writer, initially working as a journalist and now extending her work into theatre. Pat also works as co-producer.
Pat’s daughter Jane Ashworth is the company’s Music Director. Singing and live music is a central element of the work we do. Jane also provides administrative and safeguarding support.
Julian Hanby co-produces with Pat and directs the performances.
We’ve created four performances so far. We like theatre that connects with the communities in which it takes place. Central to our ethos is working with community performers, giving them professional support and the opportunity to act in interesting spaces, bringing plays to life in unique and memorable ways.
