She expected the world to fall at her feet...
Meet Narcissist: the love addict, the starving artist and the lost little girl in pursuit of self worth.
A dark comedy about life, ambition and millennial expectation.
Laced with acerbic wit, punchy dialogue and intricate spoken word, ‘Narcissist in the Mirror’ is an honest account of self-exploration, as rip-roaring as it is poignant and heartfelt.
Narcissist in the Mirror made its debut in April 2017 to sell-out audiences. Hailed as 'one of the headline offerings of this year's Greater Manchester Fringe Festival' (Manchester Theatre Awards), it received rapturous praise from audiences and critics alike and went on to win the award for BEST NEW WRITING.
After the show, there will be a Q&A session with Rosie Fleeshman and Sue Jenkins.

“Hilarious.. well-contructed... entertaining...
This is a genuinely impressive piece of work...
the standing ovation at the end was palpably sincere and heartfelt."
"an incredible show,
both darkly comic and almost tear jerkingly, intense and sad at times"
Michael Jolley, Canal St Online
“A superbly acted & witty play
