Settled …. Until suddenly you’re not…
Candid, poignant and intimate, this five star hit play by award-winning playwright Ali Taylor (Cotton Wool, OVERSPILL, Fault Lines) is a powerful and timely reflection on the social and personal impact of spiralling housing costs, gentrification and the challenges of the forced relocation.
Exploring resonances in today’s society with the story told in the ground-breaking Ken Loach film, Cathy Come Home, 50 years ago, Cathy is directed by Cardboard Citizens' Artistic Director Adrian Jackson and features its original critically acclaimed cast: Alex Jones, Amy Loughton, Cathy Owen and Hayley Wareham.
At the end of the performance audiences will experience an interactive theatre called Legislative Theatre. This will offer audiences a chance to voice their opinion at every performance, take action, express their views and contribute to the proposal of new housing laws.
Tickets are free but need to be reserved in advance if possible. There will be a small number on the door on the evening of the performance.
