Cardboard Citizens
Cathy

Exploring homelessness 50 years on from the seminal Ken Loach film, Cathy Come Home, Cathy is candid, poignant and intimate. A five-star hit at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, it’s a timely reflection on the social and personal impact of spiraling 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.

Reviews

"A harrowing, emotional piece... essential viewing. Gripping, soul-wrenching stuff"
- Scottish Mail on Sunday

"A sharply significant story told through sincere and moving performances, Cathy is painfully relevant"
- Reviews Hub

"Cathy Owen gives a stunningly good performance... This excellent show leaves you buzzing with thoughts."
- The Independent

"Visceral... perfectly pitched. If Cathy Come Home is updated again in 50 years’ time, let’s hope it has a happier ending. And if so, this play will certainly have made a contribution.”
- Radio Times

“Astonishingly Raw”
- Time Out

“Heartbreaking”
- Evening Standard
