Cat Hepburn is an award winning scriptwriter and spoken word artist based in Glasgow. She has performed for STV, BBC6 Music, River City, BBC The Social, Neu! Reekie! and Edinburgh Fringe among many others and this year she wrote and presented the documentary The New Poets for BBC Scotland. Her debut solo show #GIRLHOOD (based on her hit book published by Speculative Books) deconstructs and satarises the conventions and pressures on women in modern society and was very well received at this year’s Fringe, with her work being dubbed “incredibly valuable” by The List Magazine and “evidently a flawless writer” by The Feminist Fringe (5 stars). Cat is also one half of Sonnet Youth, a leading spoken word theatre and arts events organisation. We're excited to have Cat joining us for a performance at The Great Western.
