Written and Performed by Isabella Perversi


EMBER is a window into the mind of a young woman who, waking up one day, realises she doesn’t know who she is. Fleur lives the dream of any millennial, but instead of happiness and satisfaction she is left with an inescapable anxiety for the future.

Fresh, honest and hilarious - this dark comedy is riddled with fear, loss and new beginnings. Filmed and delivered to the comfort of your own home, this one woman show balances identity and desire and asks if we really have a choice in who we are.

Written and performed by: Isabella Perversi

"Ember treads a delicate line between psychological drama and dark comedy, and Perversi’s script – packed with one-liners about the zeitgeist – is funny and keenly observant." - The Reviews Hub 

"The slow burn of a mind never fully at rest: Ember illustrates – with care and compassion – the experience of a mental health crisis from the inside out." - The Reviews Hub

" The power is in Perversi’s monologue" - Lou Review

"Ember is an interesting piece; it probably has more questions than answers but that’s life, right?" - West End Best Friend
