Friday 29th October 7.30pm / Main House


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.

★★★★★ ‘Su Pollard gives the performance of her life, an unmissable tour-de-force of comedy
and drama brought together in a fantastically constructed piece of theatre.’

★★★★ ‘A bitter-sweet production… Pollard is effortless… she delivers a powerful
performance which has the audience hooked from the thunderous entrance straight
through.’ EDFEST MAG*

★★★★ ‘Su Pollard excels… Meeks has woven an elaborate script… beautifully deep and
detailed’ BROADWAY BABY*
