Behind the Scenes on Herons at the Lyric Hammersmith

Director Sean Holmes and dramaturg Joel Horwood discuss their approach to Simon Stephens' play.

Herons kicks off the new season at the Lyric Hammersmith on 15 January and runs until 13 February 2016.

The show tells the story of fourteen-year-old Billy, whose life has been made a misery by a gang. After their brutal campaign of terror becomes too much, it finally pushes him towards a terrible and violent act.
