2016 marked the 50th anniversary of the first screening of Ken Loach’s film Cathy Come Home.

Back in 1966 a quarter of the UK population tuned into the BBC to watch his seminal and life-changing story about one family’s slide into homelessness, and this year Cardboard Citizens have done their bit to bring it back into the public’s consciousness.

In June more than 20 Cardboard Citizens Members – all of whom themselves have had experience of homelessness – performed the first ever theatrical staging to a sold out audience at the Barbican Theatre. Fast forward four months and their modern day new Forum Theatre piece Cathy, which imagines Cathy’s life in 2016, began its critically acclaimed tour of the UK.

Settled... until suddenly you're not...
Candid, poignant and intimate, this new play by award-winning playwright Ali Taylor (Cotton Wool, OVERSPILL, 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.

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.
