Cathy

By Ali Taylor / Directed by Adrian Jackson
23 Apr - 24 Apr 2018

Tickets: £12
Age Guidance: 14+ (Contains strong language)

Following its 5 star hit run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Cathy comes to Wales Millennium Centre. Cathy tells the story of one woman's fight for her home, her life and her rights.

Exploring homelessness 50 years on from Cathy Come Home, the seminal Ken Loach film, Cathy is candid, poignant and intimate. It offers a timely reflection on the social and personal impact of spiralling housing costs, gentrification and the challenges of forced relocation.

Cardboard Citizens make theatre which illuminates homelessness and the lives of homeless people, revealing truth and sometimes beauty.

"A harrowing, emotional piece... essential viewing. Gripping, soul-wrenching stuff"

A Dangerous Woman

A Dangerous Woman

by Manjeet Mann

19 Apr 18

'We all had the desire to leave. I felt it from them. A pulse. A real flesh and blood pulse. I know they felt it, you couldn’t ignore it, couldn’t speak of it. So we silenced it’s beat.'

Fleabag

Fleabag

26 Apr - 05 May 18

Fleabag may seem over-sexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig themed café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
