A critically acclaimed theatre production which is being described as an LGBT ‘Fleabag meets Miranda’ visits Birmingham  next month.


Substance misuse and celebrity stalking are the name of the game in Eleanor Higgins’ short-but-satisfying In PurSUEt, a show that picked up plenty of plaudits at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe. 

The play features Higgins in the role of ‘Woman’, a self-proclaimed “really hot lesbian” who’s initially in denial about her alcoholism. Instead, she rationalises that life would be so very much better if only she could date her idol, television’s Sue Perkins. 


But one brief glimpse of her heroine in a bookshop and one daring foray backstage at a TV studio later, Woman starts to realise that maybe the source of her trouble isn’t her undeclared love for an already-partnered television star but rather the potent liquid sitting at the bottom of her glass...  

PurSUEt shows at the Blue Orange Theatre in Birmingham from Monday 10 to Saturday 15 February.
