A note from Paul Hunter

I’m Paul Hunter, Artistic Director of Told by an Idiot and Director of Heads Will Roll – a savage folly inspired by the myth of El Dorado.


Heads Will Roll draws inspiration from the Werner Herzog film Aguirre, the Wrath of God and the doomed BBC soap opera El Dorado. It looks at how these two worlds merge in a highly visual, very strange and very funny way. It’s performed by a brilliant company of four women, three from Spain and one from South America and it also draws on their own experiences in terms of their extraordinary dreams that they might be pursuing but failing to achieve, as many of us do!


It’s got some fantastic live music and extraordinary design by Michael Vale. It quite possibly contains some sequences that people may not have seen before on stage… I can’t go into any details now of course!


We hope to see you on the Heads Will Roll tour, where all will be revealed…
