Casting announced for What Girls Are Made Of by Cora Bissett
01 June 2018 ← return to listing
We are proud to be co-producing, alongside Raw Material and in
association with Regular Music, What
Girls Are Made Of - the first play from the mighty Cora
Bissett, charting her rollercoaster rock and roll teenage years,
for which we're excited to be able to reveal full casting.
Alongside Cora Bissett, the cast is made up of Susan Bear, Simon
Donaldson, and Grant O'Rourke (Outlander).
Actor, musician and theatre director Cora Bissett (director of
the award-winning Adam, part of Traverse Festival 2017,
and star of the acclaimed Midsummer) takes audiences back
to 1992 to tell the autobiographical story of her rollercoaster
journey from Fife schoolgirl to indie rock star.
What Girls Are Made Of celebrates the euphoric highs
(touring with Radiohead, partying with Blur) and epic
shitstorms (untrustworthy managers, £40,000 debt) of her young
life. Now a mother herself, Bissett's writing draws from her own
teenage diaries to question what wisdom we should pass on to the
next generation, and which glorious mistakes we should let them
make for themselves.
Directed by Traverse Artistic Director Orla O'Loughlin.
Part of Made in Scotland Showcase 2018.
