Gone Full Havisham

Seen at the Edinburgh Fringe
A one woman show, or experience, in which we see the central character 5 months into her time in a hotel penthouse suite still in the wedding dress she was wearing when she was abandoned at the alter. Her life has gone viral on social media as she shares her life with the world, but once the camera is off we get the other side, depressed, angry, lonely and vulnerable. Through the play we learn how her fraud of a fiancee had controlled and manipulated her into being the disfunctional person she has now become. A powerful and compelling performance from Irene Kelleher in her own play.
