Sell out success Unity Theatre show Cathy

THE builders are in, but Unity Theatre is still continuing to bring radical theatre to the City in its:- 'Out of Space' season, which reaches out of the theatre and into the community, with a selection of bold and reactive shows.

The shows Cathy has will be hosted witin the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral Lady Chapel, which will take place on 11 Feburary 2017. It is in response to the current homelessness crisis in Liverpool and we are told that both preformances have now both been sold out. The group putting on Cathy, But Cardboard Citizens, said that:- "We have been encouraging audience members to make a donations to this cause instead of buying a ticket. This seemes to have gone down well."

Actor and Unity Theatre Patron, David Morrissey said:- "Cardboard Citizens do fantastic work for excluded people, and have done for the past 25 years. I'm really pleased that Unity Theatre are able to bring the astounding show CATHY to Liverpool, which has suffered a rise in homeless people over the last few years. In addition to a suggested donation to the local foodbank, Hope+, Unity will also be collecting for Shelter, the housing and homeless charity. The charity was established 50 years ago in response to public calls for action following the release of the original TV play, Cathy Come Home. Even after 50 years Ken Loach's story is still very relevant today so please give generously!"

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.

Candid, poignant and intimate, this four star hit new play (The Stage, The Upcoming & The Reviews Hub) 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.
