Gone Full HavishamWritten & Performed by Irene Kelleher
Award-winning performer and writer Irene Kelleher invites you to the Penthouse Suite to meet Emily. Shrouded in her wedding dress, for the past five months she has been a social media sensation. Some say she’s a deranged lunatic, many say she just needs help and to others she’s a hero. Taking Dickens’ extraordinary Miss Havisham in to the era of social media with its artificial gloss and filtered reality, this is one woman who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is – the grit, the grime and stench of rotting flowers.
