THE COLLECTOR

Central Arts, 10th – 13th August, 7:00pm

Central Arts is delighted to announce its production this of ‘The Collector’ in association with Andrew Holden. The piece is to be directed by up-and-coming Cork director Killian Collins and stars Andrew Holden and Paula Weldon.

Based on the classic novel by John Fowles, The Collector is a story of possession, obsession and love is considered one of the great works in modern literature. The Collector is a piece of theatre that captures your subconscious and possesses you. You Central Arts Logowill leave the theatre questioning your morals; the judgements of what you hold dear and close to your heart. The highly controversial novel, first published in 1963, has become more relevant as the decades have progressed.

The Collector tells the story of Frederick Clegg. Frederick is a socially awkward young man that collects butterflies. He becomes infatuated with the beautiful, unapproachable art student Miranda Grey. No longer able to watch from afar, Frederick does the unthinkable and resorts to “collecting” her. What unfolds between the captor and the prisoner is a battle of wills and an exploration of privilege that will have the audience second guessing their inner moral dialogues.

Tickets available online or from Central Arts reception.

Dates: 10th – 13th August, 7:00pm
