“I’ll tell you what I really want. I want to jump clean out of my brain.”
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 collapsible chairs. Solid one minute. And then.
From award-winning Irish writer Margaret Perry (Porcelain, Abbey Theatre), Collapsible is a funny, furious new monologue about holding on in this collapsing world. For anyone who has ever felt crumbly.
