Description

'I was murdered once.' True stories (and wild speculations) about the lives and deaths of homeless people, uncovered by the UK's leading homelessness theatre company Cardboard Citizens. A Jamaican boxer known as The Entertainer, a Spanish stag party celebrating with human calligraphy, a woman who said it with flowers, a Pole not called Sam, Russian tourists, a Greek called Pericles. And death. Praise for Cathy, Fringe 2017: ***** (Sunday Mail). 'Essential viewing... Gripping, soul-wrenching stuff' ***** (EdFestMag.com). 'Brilliantly performed' ***** (The730review.co.uk). 'Informative, heartbreaking and enraging' ***** (BritishTheatreGuide.info).
