Cardboard Citizens


Candid, poignant and intimate, this new play by award-winning playwright Ali Taylor offers a timely reflection on the personal and social impact of spiralling rents and forced relocation, for a family living on the edge.

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 you can stay and take part in an interactive theatrical debate, where you can discuss, disagree with and even change the outcome.
