Gone Full Havisham


  • Playwright

    Irene Kelleher 

  • Synopsis

    Shrouded in her wedding dress, for the past five months, Emily has become a social media sensation. Some say she’s a deranged lunatic, many say she just needs help and to others she’s a hero. In this contemporary take on the character of Miss Havisham from Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, this is one woman who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is – the grit, the grime and stench of rotting flowers.
