Laura Horton’s Edinburgh Fringe First award winning play Breathless will play a limited run at London’s Soho Theatre this February.
Performed by Madeleine Macmahon, Breathless is a funny, honest and stylish exploration of the knife-edge of hoarding, from the joy to the addiction and suffocating shame. The piece is inspired by Laura Horton’s (Plymouth Laureate of Words) own experience of clothes hoarding.
The piece is presented at Soho Theatre by Theatre Royal Plymouth.
Ben Lyon-Ross, Head of Artist Development at Theatre Royal Plymouth said “Here at TRP we couldn’t be happier to be transferring BREATHLESS into the Soho Theatre, following its massive success at the Fringe last year. BREATHLESS is a homegrown show that was conceived and developed through our artists development programmes. It speaks to our ambitions to make exciting new work in Plymouth that we can share across the country. Laura’s writing is tender, funny, and quietly powerful. The play has moved and delighted audiences across Plymouth and Edinburgh and will continue to resonate wherever it goes.”
Breathless is directed by Stephanie Kempson.
Breathless runs from 7-18 February 2023 at Soho Theatre in London’s West End.
