Triangles, Hearts and Goldfish… in a blender.
Borderline Electra is a new play from Award Winning Writer/Director Stevie Helps which debuted at Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester in April 2016. Hot off the back of the incredible audience reaction at the Premiere we were pleased to be bringing the brand new show to Gullivers in Manchester’s NQ for a special ‘Pay What You Can’ performance!
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.
