Theatre Royal Plymouth presents Breathless at Soho Theatre
Tue 07 – Sat 18 Feb 2023
What happens when the things we covet hide us from ourselves? Opening up to new experiences in her late-thirties, Sophie is exploring long repressed sides of herself. When a secret she’s keeping from those she loves, and even from herself, threatens to unravel it all, she must make a choice. Who or what will she decide to give up?
Heading to Soho, following its Fringe First winning run in Edinburgh, Breathless is a funny, honest, and stylish exploration of the knife-edge of hoarding, from the joy to the addiction and suffocating shame. From Laura Horton, Plymouth Laureate of Words, own experience of clothes hoarding.
Originally supported by Pleasance as part of the Edinburgh National Partnerships
