A Festival of Sex, Love and Death

10 days, 8 companies, 5 events

The clock ticks. The cards are dealt. The game of life begins. 


Sex, love and death come in many forms. They make us feel joy, passion, pain, fear, despair… Join HeadFirst Productions at the Pleasance Theatre for a ten day celebration of the powerful forces that make us human.


A Festival of Sex, Love and Death brings together a selection of the UK’s most exciting theatre makers. With Mozart’s masterpiece Don Giovanni at its heart, #SLDfest has something for everyone; opera, dance, cabaret, new writing, and physical theatre.
