Kat is a playwright, screenwriter and producer based in Stoke-on-Trent currently creating live theatre events in unexpected spaces through new company Potboiler Theatre. Recent project The Rhapsodies & The Inn took storytelling and live music with a cast of eccentric pub inspired characters to audiences in local pubs. Kat is interested in theatre which moves audiences, takes them on a journey which people walk away from in some way a little bit changed.
Kat’s writing tries to explore the breadth of human experience from the profound to the mundane to the absurd. Recurrent themes include the inability to escape the past; the relationships between the generations; the often tragically comical gap between who we are and who want to be. Kat wants to create immersive theatrical encounters which delve into these themes but ultimately bring people together in real time and space to share new experiences.
