Overview

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 folding chairs. Solid one minute. And then.

Margaret Perry's play Collapsible is a funny, furious monologue about holding on in this collapsing world. It was premiered at the 2019 VAULT Festival, London, where it won the Origins Award for Outstanding New Work.

It transferred to the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Bush Theatre, London, in a co-production between Ellie Keel Productions and HighTide.
