Cardboard Citizens

Cathy

There is an opportunity to see this award winning show in Wales next week –

Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff 23rd – 24th April

The Welfare, Swansea 25th April

Torch Theatre, Milford Haven 26th April

Aberystwyth Arts Centre 27th April

Cardboard Citizens are a theatre company and homeless charity based in London – we work with homeless people to tell their stories. Cathy has been our most successful show to date, as well as touring extensively in 2017, it played by invitation at the House of Lords on the evening of the second reading of the Homelessness Reduction Bill, and later at the Labour Party Conference during the launch of their homelessness strategy.

Inspired by Ken Loach and Jeremy Sandford’s ground-breaking film Cathy Come HomeCathy continues Cardboard Citizens’ exploration of the state of housing and homelessness. This powerful and emotive play, written by award-winning playwright Ali Taylor, and directed by Adrian Jackson, imagines a Cathy for our times. Based on true stories, it explores the impact of spiralling social housing costs, gentrification and the challenges of forced relocation through the compelling story of one family.

The performance will include an interactive forum theatre session after the show, giving audience members a chance to voice opinions and offer ideas that might change the course of the characters’ lives, which I hoped might be of particular interest to your organisation.

This week’s run in Soho received some really wonderful four star reviews from The IndependentGuardian and Standard 

 Tickets are available here!
