Presented by Something for the Weekend and The Kings Theatre Portsmouth

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; 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-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).

★★★★★ ‘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.’ THEATRE WEEKLY*

★★★★ ‘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*

*Reviews for the production of Harpy at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018 directed by Hannah Chissick
