Harpy: Previews This Week

July 23rd, 2018

harpy18iThe first of Su’s two Harpy previews takes place this Thursday at Museum Of Comedy, London. The other preview is on Sunday at the same venue.

Harpy opens at the Edinburgh Fringe on 2nd August.

A razor-sharp drama from Fringe First award-winner Philip Meeks (Kiss Me Honey, Honey!), Harpy is directed by Hannah Chissick (Mother Courage & Her Children, Southwark Playhouse; The Beautiful Game, NYMT; Flashdance, UK Tour), and stars national treasure Su Pollard in her Edinburgh Fringe debut.

Birdie’s a hoarder. The neighbours call her a harridan and a harpy, although most have never even met her. They see her hoard as a hazard for house prices. But it isn’t rubbish. It’s her life’s work and it exists because years ago something deeply cherished was stolen, and Birdie’s not been able to give up anything since. She’ll do anything to get this priceless thing back. Anything at all. A razor-sharp drama from Fringe First award winner Philip Meeks (Kiss Me Honey, Honey!), directed by Hannah Chissick and starring national treasure Su Pollard in her Edinburgh Fringe debut.

Rev Stan’s Theatre Blog: Su Pollard Interview

July 18th, 2018

revstan18aAnother new interview with Su, discussing Harpy and the forthcoming Edinburgh Fringe, at Rev Stan’s Theatre Blog.

Edinburgh Fringe interview: Su Pollard on her fringe debut and what she wants to see while she’s there 

Su Pollard will be making her Edinburgh Fringe debut starring in Harpy, a play written especially for her by Fringe-first winner Philip Meeks.

In this preview interview, she talks about playing Birdie, a woman ostracised by her neighbours because of her hoarding, embarking on her first fringe and what she wants to see when she isn’t performing.

How does it feel to have a play specially commissioned for you?
When I first met the playwright Philip Meeks about three years ago he said he was going to write something for me. I don’t think either of us thought much more about it until Suzanna Rosenthal suggested it because we knew each other. 

I’ve often been asked to go to Edinburgh but I’ve either been busy with other shows or the right play hasn’t been sent my way. What’s fantastic about this is I’ve been there from the start and Philip’s told me about every stage of his thinking and the writing process.  I feel as if I’ve really helped to create the role.
