Charlie’s A Clepto
by Clare Monnelly
Charlie is a kleptomaniac - the doctor told her. Reckons it stems from childhood trauma. But she has the robbin’ completely under control these days. For real.
She has a bit of a mouth on her, but she’s only trying to be funny, give everyone a laugh, not cause trouble, like. Not today, of all days. She loves that little boy more than she ever thought it was possible to love another human.
There’s a lot riding on these 24 hours, and if she keeps her head down, she’ll get him back. Everyone has a story to tell... but... there's a time and a place. This is neither.
Follow Charlie, the queen of self-sabotage as she tries desperately - for once in her life – to keep her mouth shut long enough to make it count.
Directed by award-winning actor Aaron Monaghan, Charlie is a Clepto was nominated for Best New Play and Best Actress at the Irish Times Theatre Awards and for the Stewart Parker Trust New Playwright Bursary in 2017.
