Hi-De-Hi star Su Pollard will bring heart-wrenching play Harpy to Derbyshire
National treasure Su Pollard stars in a one-woman show that explores mental illness and loneliness among the elderly.
Best known for her role as chalet maid Peggy in telly sitcom Hi-De-Hi, Su will be performing in Harpy at Buxton’s Pavilion Arts Centre on March 25, 2021.
Su plays Birdie, a character who is elderly, struggling with mental health and being alone, and is an avid hoarder clinging on to memories of the past. Her neighbours think Birdy is a harridan, although most have never met her
Harpy was written by Philip Meeks and enjoyed a successful debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018.
The production was due to be staged in Buxton on September 12, 2020 but has been moved to next year as the venue is still closed amid lockdown.
