WINNER, Sydney Theatre Awards 2023

NOMINEE, Sydney Theatre Awards 2023
Best Performance in a Leading Role in an
Independent Production - Janet Anderson


“[Moroney & Herten have] created an atmosphere of
visual and aural dissonance that vividly illustrates
what’s going on in Essie’s mind. It’s a paradox for the
audience as the experience of watching and listening
is profoundly sad, scary, and hilarious by turn. 

Anderson is heart-stopping in a nuanced, intelligent,
and luminous performance, aided by her co-directors
and surroundings.
Collapsible is outstanding.

★★★★ 1/2  - Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise

“[Anderson] is towering, even when feeling deflated,
confessing depletion, collapsing into invisibility.

Collapsible also integrates digital technology not
as a gimmick but an aid to the narrative and is
interwoven astonishingly well...
Collapsible is
an all encompassing theatrical experience.
