Harpy Written by Philip Meeks, starring Su Pollard.
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, and 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 gives a one-woman tour-de-force performance in this razor-sharp and bittersweet drama from Fringe First award-winner Philip Meeks (Kiss Me Honey, Honey!, Murder, Margaret and Me).
