Amy Loughton in Cardboard Citizen’s Cathy

Amy Loughton brings her versatility and skill to the stage, showcasing ‘several sharply defined and observed characters’ (The Reviews Hub), in Ali Taylor’s new play, Cathy.

Cathy offers a timely reflection on the social and personal impact of spiralling housing costs, gentrification and the challenges of forced relocation.

Acclaimed theatre company Cardboard Citizens presents this powerful and emotive Forum Theatre show, exploring resonances in today’s society with the story told in the ground-breaking Ken Loach film, Cathy Come Home, 50 years ago. After watching the play, audience members are invited to take part in the game of forum theatre, Cardboard Citizens have become leading practitioners of this in their 25 year history. Audience members are invited on to the stage to play the characters & suggest alternative ideas which might change the course of their lives.

Having received rave reviews after its initial London run at the Pleasance, Cathy will now embark on a five month tour of theatres, hostels, prisons and day centres across England.
