‘The lovechild of slam poetry and the snatched rant over coffee or in the loo…. Bittersweet, irreverent and to-the-point, these poems speak of life’s knots and identity pitfalls all too clearly’ ★★★★ The Skinny
Published by Speculative Books in November 2018, #GIRLHOOD is a smart, subversive, hilarious and honest exploration of growing up. The debut poetry collection deconstructs and satirises conventions and pressures of modern society with a glint in its eye and fire in its belly. Cat’s unique and authentic voice, accompanied by Jenny Booth’s vibrant illustrations, weaves stories at once personal and universal; gritty and joyous.
I adapted #GIRLHOOD into a solo show in 2019, producing a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe (5* Feminist Fringe, 4* Broadway Baby) and making it into Fest Magazine’s round-up of Best Theatre.
