Bicycles and Fish

How I became a woman. A period piece. With songs.

“I have always loved fairytales. My favourite film ever was Beauty and the Beast until we learnt about Stockholm Syndrome in PSHE”.

Bicycles and Fish is Katie’s debut one woman show about the day she stopped being a girl and became a woman. Aged sixteen, still in school and hopelessly in love, Katie is going to have to face demons, witches and an ogre if she’s to win Dan’s heart.

Sort of.

We’re being ironic. Just like Alanis.

Combining comedy, storytelling and original songs in a performance “reminiscent of Victoria Wood” (London Pub Theatre, thank you very much), Katie wants to talk about why feminism is discovered so much later in life than misogyny and how she/you/we might change that.

Katie is being mentored by Daniel Goldman, director of Team Viking – VAULT Origins Award 2016 & A Hundred Different Words for Love – VAULT Festival Show Of The Year 2017.

This performance takes place at the Waterloo East Theatre. Please see the Your Visit page for the address and directions.

Tickets will go off-sale online one hour before the performance commences, but may still be available on the door from the Waterloo East Theatre Box Office.
