A Raw Material and Traverse Theatre Company co-production in association with Regular Music
It’s 1992. In a small town in Fife, a girl is desperate to get out into the world. An ad in the local paper declares: Band Seeks Singer.
Grunge has gone global, indie kids are inheriting the earth, and a schoolgirl from Glenrothes is catapulted to a rock star lifestyle as the singer in a hot new indie band. Touring with Radiohead, partying with Blur, she was living the dream. Until she wasn’t.
Based on her meticulously detailed teenage diaries, this is the true story of Cora Bissett’s rollercoaster journey from the girl she was to the woman she wanted to be.
Fresh from an award-winning, sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018, performed with a live band, and directed by Orla O’Loughlin, Cora celebrates life’s euphoric highs and epic shitstorms, asking what wisdom we should pass on to the next generation – and which glorious mistakes we should let them make.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for What Girls Are Made Of are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
