Cat Loud: To the End of the World!

When: Saturday 9th March 2019
Show Begins: 7.30pm
Tickets: Pay What You Feel
Age Recommendation: 14+
Running Time: approx. 1 hour

I’d like to propose a toast.

Here’s to the apocalypse.

Because if the end is nigh, I need to wear my Sunday best and get a few things off my chest.

It’s the eve of the apocalypse, and Cat is making her way home.

If imagining the end of days was an Olympic sport, Cat Loud would take gold for Britain. And then trade her medals for cans of beans and moonshine at the European border.

In increasingly bleak times, Cat examines regret, anxiety and hope in this biting and touching satire and features an eclectic mix of songs – from Paolo Nutini to Nina Simone to Frank Sinatra - accompanied by Fraser Parry on cello.

VAULT Festival Origins Award for Outstanding New Work 2018

“you’re left hungry for more.” Fest

“Cat’s singing is spectacular, effortless and moving... delivered with charisma and great energy.“ The Play’s The Thing

“sharp-tongued and comedic spoken interludes with a brand of dusky torch singing which stuns the room into silence.“
