Award-winning writer and spoken word artist Cat (BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC The Social, Radio Scotland, STV) debuts the stage adaptation of her hit poetry book. Nostalgic, hilarious and heartbreaking, her performance deconstructs and satirises the milestones, conventions and pressures that girls and young women face.

‘Hepburn’s new collection is the lovechild of slam poetry and the snatched rant over coffee or in the loo… Bittersweet, irreverent and to-the-point, these poems speak of life’s knots and identity pitfalls all too clearly’ **** (Skinny). ‘Cat Hepburn helped make poetry cool again’ (Scottish Sun).

#GIRLHOOD THE BOOK

“Cat Hepburn’s new collection is the lovechild of slam poetry and the snatched rant over coffee or in the loo, away from unfriendly ears. Based around familiar subjects and scenarios, #GIRLHOOD takes us through the experiences that create, develop, warp, break and strengthen women and girls… Bittersweet, irreverent and to-the-point, these poems speak of life’s knots and identity pitfalls all too clearly. Laughter will often be accompanied by a twinge of pain – the kind of laugh we all need sometimes, if only to purge us of the bottled up emotions we (still) don’t always feel comfortable expressing on a daily basis”  The Skinny (4 Stars).

Available to buy from Speculative books.
