Set in a fading hairdresser’s, in a town in northern England, ‘I Want That Hair’
is a hilarious warts and all look at what happens between the chit-chat, the wash
and blow dry and the curling, in a local hair salon. It explores the lives and
friendship of the two women who work there.
Bex is fifty-five, fed-up and rushed off her feet. Heidi is supposed to be her assistant.
Originally commissioned for Hull Truck Theatre and written by BAFTA-award winning
playwright, Jane Thornton, ‘I Want That Hair’ is a convincing, enjoyable and well-observed
play, portraying characters with warmth and honesty.
Ruffled Feathers Productions is delighted to work with director Antony Law on a first
collaboration between Libby Edwards and Sarah Dixon in the Welsh première of
‘I Want That Hair’.
We are proud to be able to preview ‘I Want That Hair’ at The SPYCE Centre, Colwyn Bay
and Caerwys Town Hall in November 2019 (see key dates below), before embarking on a
UK theatre tour in 2020.
