The Play

The Collector, a play by Mark Healy, adapted from the novel by John Fowles.

Frederick Clegg became obsessed with Miranda Grey at first sight. The repressed, introverted, butterfly collector, at first merely admires the beautiful art student from afar. But then he wins the Lottery and buys a remote country house, planning to bring her there as his ‘guest’. Having abducted and imprisoned her, he soon finds the reality is far from his fantasy and their tense, claustrophobic relationship leads to a devastating climax.



Frederick Clegg (m 20+) - Frederick Clegg appears to be an ordinary, slightly shabby and socially awkward clerk. Winning a fortune in the lottery he buys a remote country house, and goes about furnishing it with everything he thinks a beautiful woman could desire.

Miranda Grey (f 20+) - Miranda is an art student at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. She grew up in a privileged middle-class household. Miranda is kidnapped by Frederick Clegg and is held captive in the basement of his country home.
