Written by NewLiveTheatre on . Posted in Latest News, Press, Shows


Borderline Electra is a new play from Writer/Director Stevie Helps which debuted at Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester in April 2016.

BOOK YOUR SEATS NOW – You decide what you pay!


When his wife goes missing, Stuart informs his daughter (Rachel) that she has committed suicide. Elliott first meets Rachel in her local pub, where he finds her alone and drunkenly singing her heart out on a table top to ‘Last Christmas’ – in April. When her father arrives to pull her down, Elliot jumps to defend her. But all is not what it seems. This family must prepare themselves for the consequences of their actions… a family, and their goldfish, torn apart. This is no ordinary story.
