CATHY by Ali Taylor, a new play inspired by Ken Loach’s CATHY COME HOME, marks the 25th anniversary of Cardboard Citizens. Click here for tickets and info.
July 12, 2016 |

In October, Cardboard Citizens will continue their exploration of the state of housing and homelessness with Cathy, a powerful and emotive new Forum Theatre show by award-winning playwright Ali Taylor (Cotton Wool, OVERSPILL), exploring how life might be for a Cathy today. Based like the film on true stories, this timely reflection will look at the social and personal impact of spiralling housing costs and the challenges of the forced relocation out of London experienced by many people on council waiting lists. The production has been researched with the support of housing and homelessness charity Shelter and each performance will end with a debate in classic forum theatre style.
