Collector of Tears

an image is not available
Collector of Tears is an epic love story told across four centuries by a woman who cannot age until she has cried. Instead Tanya collects tears from moments of radical English history, slowly learning to fight for human rights and understanding and naming her own bisexuality forged across time. Wherever she goes she carries with her an amazing collection of glass tear bottles which she unpacks and tells their stories. On the day of Margaret Thatcher’s resignation, Tanya finally stands her ground and fights those who have hunted her and her lovers down through time; finally learning how to cry. “Sean Burn's Collector of Tears is a sweeping epic of a monologue that traverses centuries yet concerns itself with the most intimate of emotions. Full of surprising poetry, an artful weave of half-remembered myths, it is a theatrical Orlando for our times.” Colin Teevan
