The winner of 2019's What's On Stage award for best new musical, Heathers follows Veronica Sawyer, a high school "nobody" who dreams of becoming popular. She's accepted into the "Heathers" clique at Westerberg High but she attracts the attention of mysterious teen rebel Jason Dean, or JD for short, As she begins to behave in order to fit in with the crowd, the big question is, can Veronica remain true to herself?
