I am delighted to be debuting my solo spoken word show #GIRLHOOD at the Edinburgh Fringe this year from July 31st – Aug 25th (excluding Aug 12th and 19th) at the Gilded Balloon Rose Theatre Attic.

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.


“There is no doubt this Glaswegian girl can write – and is worth the price of the ticket alone.” ★★★★ Broadway Baby

“A bold and exciting performance from an excellent poet and an important voice in spoken word.” ★★★★ The Wee Review

“Guiding the audience effortlessly between light and dark, humour and emotion, Hepburn’s writing is perceptive and evocative, and her delivery self-assured and well crafted.” ★★★★ Fest Magazine





“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).
