Jeremy Herrin directs Junkyard at the Bristol Old Vic

Feb 24, 2017

Jeremy Herrin directs new musical Junkyard, opening at the Bristol Old Vic. 

It's 1979 in Lockleaze, and Rick decides to build a junk playground. He's pretty sure he can get local kids Fiz, Higgy and Ginger involved. He's wrong. Inspired by the true story behind the Lockleaze playground known as 'The Vench', Junkyard is a new story created by BAFTA award-winning writer Jack Thorn and Academy-award winning composer Stephen Warbeck.  

Jeremy Herrin is an Evening Standard award-wining director. His work includes Wolf Hall for the RSC,  for which he was nominated for an Olivier Award, and People, Places and Things at the National Theatre. His production of James Graham's This House recently closed at the Garrick Theatre. 

Junkyard also stars Josef Davies, in the role of Ginger, and Jack Riddiford in the role of Higgy. Josef recently appeared in the Royal Court's production of Hangmen by Martin McDonagh. Jack has just graduated from RADA and will appear in Christopher Nolan's forthcoming film, Dunkirk. 

Junkyard runs from 24th February to 18th March. For more details and tickets, please see here.
