  4. In PurSUEt heads to VAULT Festival 2023

A delusional Sue Perkins superfan is sent to a therapist to tackle her addictions in a solo queer tragi-comedy theatre show.

Following two successful runs at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Bush Productions’ In PurSUEt returns in 2023 for its VAULT Festival debut midway through a nationwide tour. Eleanor Higgins explores themes of addiction and obsession in a solo queer tragi-comedy show about a Sue Perkins enthusiast who has been sent to a therapist to deal with her drinking. During the sessions she relays her adventures pursuing Sue. From online stalking to gatecrashing a BBC afterparty, there’s nothing she won’t do to get her gal. But can she keep it all together and win her heart’s desire, whilst battling her out of control drinking? 

In PurSUEt is a play with unexpected truth, nuance and hope. A searingly fresh new show that leaves the audience in little doubt: that in recovery, one finds redemption.
