Following its acclaimed premiere performances here at the Kings in 2020, we’re delighted to welcome back National treasure Su Pollard, who gives a one-woman, tour-de-force 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.
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 stolenfrom her; Birdie’s not been able to give up anything since. She’ll do anything to get this priceless thing back. Anything at all.
‘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.’
‘Su Pollard excels… Meeks has woven an elaborate script… beautifully deep and detailed’
