by Margaret Perry Jubilee Hall

Origins Award For Outstanding New Work

VAULT Festival 2019

Ellie Keel Productions and HighTide present Collapsible by Margaret Perry.

“I’ll tell you what I really want. I want to jump clean out of my brain.”

Essie's lost her job. Her girlfriend’s left. But she's alright.

Except lately she feels more like a chair than a person. One of those collapsible chairs. Solid one minute. And then.

From award-winning Irish writer Margaret Perry (Porcelain, Abbey Theatre), Collapsible is a funny, furious new monologue about holding on in this collapsing world. For anyone who has ever felt crumbly.

Age recommendation: 12+

Running time: 1 hr

Collapsible is part of Disruption season at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019.

“The ambition and vision of the best Irish writers”

The Independent on Porcelain
