Cashy C’s: The Musical is Kirsty Taylor’s witty and poignant debut play, set in a recreated pawnbroker shop in Bradford. The musical uses rap and bassline to tell the stories of people who live hand-to-mouth, trading in a kettle on Monday and buying it back on Friday because they really need a fiver.
Kirsty depicts the effects of real life poverty in contemporary Britain with sharp wit and true compassion. Expect karaoke machines, mobility scooters and a proper night out with a high-energy ensemble cast. This is a story of our time, a story of struggle and perseverance created by and for working-class people.
Also included are several of Kirsty’s spoken word poems on similar themes.
‘Brilliant, authentic writing from a rising star. A lyrical celebration of human resilience and dark humour in the face of grinding poverty.’ – Kevin Fegan
