Forced out of London by spiralling living costs, Cathy finds herself in an unfamiliar town with no friends and no money; pushed to make choices she doesn't want to make...

Candid, poignant and intimate, Ali Taylor's play Cathy offers a timely reflection on the lives of those at the sharp end of economic austerity, faced with impossible choices and an uncertain future.

Inspired by Cathy Come Home, Ken Loach's pioneering television drama, Cathy was first produced in 2016 by Cardboard Citizens, a theatre company that makes work with and for homeless people, on a tour of the UK.
