Description

My place on HoardingUK’s Charity Board is to occasionally contribute and chip in with my personal experience of hoarding. To reveal a tiny snatch about myself, I had the sheer joy of performing with the Contemporary Dance Company, ‘Dancers Anonymous’ up at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival back in 1978-1980. Laura Horton is Plymouth Laureate of Words, 2021-22, the first playwright and woman in the position. I wanted to show the breadth of how much theatre positively impacts people, but not just through shows through community work and engagement which doesn’t often get much attention. Recently classed by WHO as a mental illness with connections to OCD, hoarding, explains Horton, is not always the image we see on TV of teetering masses of boxes and newspapers, carrier bags and garbage.

Director Stephanie Kempson keeps the show dynamic, using the set of clothing rails well to create a feeling of claustrophobia and intensity when needed.What struck me about the play was the beauty of the writing, the images it conjured, the humour, the shame, the self-realisation, the poignancy, the coming out both sexually and as a hoarder and, for me personally, the hope! But when she’s suddenly evicted from her flat and has to pack up and move back to Plymouth with her parents, it becomes patently clear that she has a problem, rocking up with a huge moving van chock-a-block full, not of furniture, but of clothes.

Böngésszen a világ legnagyobb e-könyvesboltjában, és még ma kezdjen neki az olvasásnak az interneten, táblagépén, telefonján vagy e-olvasóján.The environmental cost of creating clothes is clearly high as huge amounts of resources are needed to make clothes. The structure and pacing are spot on, unveiling information gradually in a way that makes the seventy-minute run time race by.
