Harpy starring Su Pollard
16th October 2021
Birdie’s a hoarder. The neighbours call her a harridan and a harpy, although most have never even met her. They see her hoard as a hazard for house prices. But it isn’t rubbish. It’s her life’s work and it exists because years ago something deeply cherished was stolen from her; Birdie’s not been able to give up anything since.
She’ll do anything to get this priceless thing back. Anything at all.
National treasure Su Pollard (Hi-de-Hi, You Rang, M’Lord?) gives a one-woman tour-deforce performance in this razor-sharp and bittersweet dark drama from Fringe First award winner Philip Meeks (Kiss Me Honey, Honey!, Murder, Margaret and Me).
Directed by Abigail Anderson.
