Mrs Delgado

By Mike Bartlett
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781839040542, 56 pages, December 2021


Helen, along with sixty-seven million other people, is in lockdown. Unfortunately, Helen's neighbour, Mrs Delgado, is not.

Mike Bartlett's funny and poignant play for one actor tells a story of desire, control, raised blinds and lowered boundaries.

This edition also includes the monologue Phoenix, a powerful story of fire and destruction, self-deceit and the corrosion of trust.


"Provocative, uncannily topical... rewardingly witty."

- Telegraph

"Riveting... With Bartlett's ability to write characters with such sincere humanity, this 60-minute drama is as bewitching as it is unsettling... exquisitely worded."

- The Stage

"Hilarious... has the gleeful glow of someone returning to what they love. The story and characters tumble out fully formed. The jokes feel effortless, the passion instinctive. It's a heartfelt rallying cry for the importance of community... Mrs Delgado bursts off the page."

- Guardian
