‘Becoming Marvellous’ with Cathy Carson – 17 June

Cathy Carson is a spoken word performer from Northern Ireland, known for her powerful, emotive, engaging and deeply affecting performances. She has performed at festivals, radio, television, theatre, podcasts, and she has been published in several anthologies. Her writing combines poetry and storytelling and explores human connection and condition.

Her first one woman show ‘Becoming Marvellous’ opened in Armagh to rave reviews and recently won the Saboteur Award 2022 for Best Spoken Word Show.

Unafraid, unflinching, heart-breaking, and heart-warming this semi-autobiographical performance begins in Belfast in the 1970’s, where life at home is as troubled for young Danielle as it is on the streets. Mistreated at home, expelled from school at 15 and homeless by 20, Danielle feels like she is drowning. But there are lifeboats around her, people who will save her if only she can trust them enough to take their hand.

Be prepared for a roller coaster of emotions, a stunningly crafted script, and a powerhouse performance.

Proceeds to Simon Community NI.
