Citizens Theatre presents a Raw Material and Traverse Theatre co-production in association with Regular Music

Written and performed by Cora Bissett
Directed by Orla O'Loughlin

It’s 1992. In a small town in Fife, a girl is desperate to get out into the world. An ad in the local paper declares: Band Seeks Singer.

Grunge has gone global, indie kids are inheriting the earth, and a schoolgirl from Glenrothes is catapulted to a rock star lifestyle as the singer in a hot new indie band. Touring with Radiohead, partying with Blur, she was living the dream. Until she wasn’t.

Based on her meticulously detailed teenage diaries, this is the true story of Cora Bissett’s rollercoaster journey from the girl she was to the woman she wanted to be.

Fresh from an award-winning, sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, performed with a live band, and directed by the Traverse Theatre’s former Artistic Director Orla O’Loughlin, Cora celebrates life’s euphoric highs and epic shitstorms, asking what wisdom we should pass on to the next generation – and which glorious mistakes we should let them make.

Suitable for ages 14+
Contains strong language.

Please note if tickets are sold out for your chosen performance, they may still be available from the Citizens Theatre website.
