Following a sold out run of The Nether by Jennifer Haley, Falling Doors Theatre and Carol Maginn reunite on Kitty, being performed as part of Liverpool Irish Festival after an extract was previewed at LightNight earlier this year.

The play commemorates the significant influence Kitty played in Liverpool by helping to turn the tide on a cholera epidemic spreading through the city. Echoing many of the class and gentrification issues still at large today, Kitty’s indefatigable work to help the poor of Liverpool in the face of terrific adversity continues to show how migrants help their destination cities, sometimes in unimaginable ways. The play is followed by a short Q&A with Liverpool historian Michael Kelly, writer of Kitty Wilkinson’s biography.

Please note: The actual performance date is Thurs 25 Oct – not Wed 24 Oct – as outlined in the #LIF2018 brochure and some listings.
