Description

She is a clothes hoarder: you can’t move in her room for racks and piles of coats, dresses, shoes and other apparel. BREATHLESS is a homegrown show that was conceived and developed through our artists development programmes.

Because I think, I’ve worked with so many artists, and not to be disparaging but so many artists think about the art as being the most important thing but I think it’s the audience. This success for TRP demonstrates its new creative ambition which was announced by CEO and Executive Producer James Mackenzie-Blackman in 2022. In her enlightening play, she opens up about identifying her problem, and the thoughts that came next.

Heading to Soho Theatre 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. There’s all the time in the world to see my place,” Sophie says, except there isn’t, because Jo is weary of being kept at a distance. In my late twenties I found the thrill of sample sales and built a beautiful wardrobe, adding pieces I never would’ve been able to afford otherwise. The causes of hoarding are complex and there isn’t one thing in Sophie’s life that triggers the anxiety. As an ex-actress myself, I am passionate about how theatre can enlighten, educate and shine a light on lives, situations and the frailty that is mankind and mental health.

There is still so much stigma around hoarding and it remains a very misunderstood mental health condition. Played by Madeleine MacMahon, who gives her a nervous likability, Sophie would seem to have arrived at a joyous time in life. Breathless, by Laura Horton, is a play about hoarding, the way this addiction creeps into people’s lives without them even noticing it and dealing with the sense of loss.Like all great theatre you cannot see the workings of this production, only the highly polished whole, but clearly a talented team of creative women have joined together to consider all aspects of this near-perfect piece.

This spring BIPC Devon is focusing on how we can support female entrepreneurs to turn their passion into profit! People could benefit from the effort I’d put into running around London, queueing from 6am, finding special things affordably.

With a light touch Horton cleverly shows the deep negative impacts on her protagonist’s job, relationships and social life. One imagines that with a play about hoarding, the stage would be crammed with piles of stuff, but director Stephanie Kempson has opted instead for two rails lined with empty clothing bags.
