Katie Hurley / You're SO F**KING Croydon!
“It was my nemesis, I hated Croydon with a real vengeance. It represented everything I didn't want in my life, everything I wanted to get away from. I think it's the most derogatory thing I can say about somebody or something: ‘God, it's so f**king Croydon!’ - David Bowie
Join writer-performer Katie Hurley, for a work in progress of her debut solo show, 'You're SO F**KING Croydon!'. Interweaving music, dance and noughties culture, Katie explores themes of home and hope, as she boldly asks if where you live, shapes who you are and who you are destined to be?
‘A difficult subject written with so much realism and humanity. Amazing!’ - Park Theatre Patron for The Witterings
'Katie Hurley is outstanding. I’m not normally one for gushing but I can hand on heart say hers was one of the best performances I’ve seen this year' WestEndWilma for Zero Down
