Soho Theatre presents a Raw Material & Traverse Theatre Company co-production in association with Regular Music

What Girls Are Made Of

Written and performed by Cora Bissett Mon 9 – Sat 28 Sep 19 90 minutes
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.

‘a roaring, exhilarating show.’
★★★★ Independent

Fresh from an award-winning, sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, performed with a live band, and directed by Orla O’Loughlin (Mouthpiece), 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.

Actor and director Cora Bissett returns to Soho Theatre for the first time since performing in David Greig’s acclaimed play Midsummer ( a play with songs) in 2010. As a director, she created the Olivier Award winning Roadkill and Glasgow Girls.
