Kitty: Queen of the Washhouse, the critically lauded one-woman show by ArtsGroupie about Liverpudlian icon Kitty Wilkinson, makes a triumphant return to the Shakespeare North Playhouse after delighting audiences in the Sir Ken Dodd Performance Garden in 2022.
The show, directed by Margaret Connell, and written by John Maguire, has been touring since 2018, and follows the ‘‘against all odds” story of how a working-class Victorian girl fought the cholera epidemic and became a community champion.
This intricate story, told with humour and kindness, brings Kitty Wilkinson’s St. George’s Hall statue to life on stage. Be immersed in Kitty’s world and celebrate a true female hero of the North.
Actress Samantha Alton’s turn as the famous heroine has cemented her as a theatrical tour de force, and one of Liverpool City Regions finest players.
A powerful one-woman performance transporting you back to 1830s Liverpool to tell the story of Irish immigrant Kitty Wilkinson, whose pioneering approach to public hygiene helped stem the city’s 1832 cholera epidemic.
