A vivid play with songs.
Kat and Emily have masked their love to escape the stigma of Britain in the 1960’s. Reunited on the eve of the Apollo 11 moon landing, rather than confront this they revisit their teenage fantasies of the lives they could have had…maybe a Hollywood Icon…or a Rock ‘n’ Roll star? With so much possibility in the air, their life choices are thrown into chaos.
The world is changing, so why is it that love seems the most impossible thing of all? ‘And We’ll Catch Stardust, Yes We Will’ is an explosive look at love, freedom and what we do to conceal ourselves.
Women's Writes is dedicated to platforming female and non-binary voices. We're bored of those archetypes we see on stage and screen and are redressing the balance by promoting women writers. We've had multiple sell out shows at The Arcola Theatre, been seen at VAULT Festival 2020 and were nominated for an ONCOMM award for the Women's Writes Online Festival.
We were last seen at The Arcola Theatre's 'Today I'm Wiser' Festival (2021) and with 'We'll Dance on The Ash of The Apocalypse' by Melissa-Kelly Franklin at The Park Theatre's Come What May Festival in 2022.
We've been featured on BBC Radio London, named 'Empowering' by DIVA Magazine and called 'Politically and socially imperative' by London Theatre Reviews.
