About this deal

Consenting to these technologies will allow us to process data such as browsing behaviour or unique IDs on this site. Its only issue is that in the never-ending sea of one-person plays, Breathless doesn't quite stand out as much as it could. Both felt it was an accurate reflection of their lives, far removed from the casual treatment of hoarders on TV who are often shown as living in piles of vermin infested rubbish, with ‘a cure’ being as simple as chucking house contents in a skip and a jolly good clean.

Horton describes herself as having been “on the knife-edge” of compulsive collecting, in denial for a long time because of media portrayals of the condition are so extreme. Trying to provide a gap for emerging and established, because it’s just quite woeful, there was an article quite recently I think in the Stage in someone said “We’re creating a culture of Primark playwrights”.It will be great to see what Horton will produce next, maybe a full-length drama with a bigger budget at her disposal.

Full-length plays include: Labyrinth Diet, The Space, London 2021, ONCOMM winner; Triptych, Theatre Royal Plymouth, 2021. Happy Meal, written by Tabby Lamb and Breathless by Laura Horton are both winners of prestigious Fringe First Awards, after captivating audiences in Edinburgh last summer.

Similarly, whilst the bulk of the script explains Sophie’s issues via her nervous enthusiasm, allowing the audience to see for themselves that the clothes are a coping mechanism, the ending is a bit unnecessarily climactic and tidy, and takes away from the likelihood of the story. When she plays Jo, her voice drops an octave, emphasising Sophie’s vulnerability as she takes the slow road to recovery.She plays her as a woman more dented than strengthened by experience, an air of childlike wonder undercut by her endless apologies and lack of confidence. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. 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.
