Cathy: Northern Stage


Settled... until suddenly you're not...

Candid, poignant and intimate, this new play by award-winning playwright Ali Taylor (Cotton WoolOVERSPILL, Fault Lines) offers a timely reflection on the social and personal impact of spiralling housing costs, gentrification and the challenges of the forced relocation away from London.

Acclaimed theatre company Cardboard Citizens presents this powerful and emotive show, provoking discussion and debate, inspired by Ken Loach's pioneering drama, Cathy Come Home.

Forum Theatre is an interactive style of theatre which empowers the audience to change the outcome – every show is a unique experience. After watching the play, you’ll have the chance to voice your opinion and offer ideas which might change the course of the characters’ lives. Or, if you choose, just sit back and watch as the story is rewritten live in front of your eyes.
