Cat Hepburn: #GIRLHOOD

April 30, 2020 7:30 pm
April 30, 2020 8:30 pm


Award-winning writer and spoken word artist Cat Hepburn (List Hot 11, BBC 6 Music Festival, BBC The Social, Sonnet Youth) presents a nostalgic, hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of the joy and pain of growing up.

Punctuated by seminal pop music from the ’90s and ’00s, it deconstructs and satirises the milestones, conventions and pressures that girls face. #GIRLHOOD is ultimately about finding those who will help you survive the lows, and dance in celebration with you on the highs.

“Humorous yet poignant” ★★★★★ Feminist Fringe
“Scarily relatable” ★★★★ Broadway Baby
“A rite of passage of Spice Girls, girls trips and awkward teenage fumbling” ★★★★ Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
