‘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 folding chairs. Solid one minute. And then. A funny, furious, form-busting new monologue, performed by Breffni Holahan, about holding on in this collapsing world — for anyone who has ever felt crumbly.

★★★★★

it is a crowning, towering performance by Breffni Holahan, under Martin's first class direction, that brings everything to life. Showing the graceful articulations of a dancer, and exquisite timing in delivery, Holahan is mesmerisingly brilliant in a performance of such quality it just takes your breath away.
