In a world of corruption, decadence and intrigue,
a lone woman confronts the most powerful
institution of her times.
Set in fourteenth century France,
and inspired by actual events,
Catherine at Avignon is the story
of an extraordinary personality.
Branded a no-one by her society,
Catherine fearlessly took on kings and queens.
Avignon would be her greatest challenge.
Bawdy and bloody, exuberant and irreverent, this audience favourite returns to the stage.
“a triumph of narrative construction
….a significant achievement”
“wickedly funny … poetic and whimsical”
“Amidst the sin and sarcasm are
startling moments of poetry…
what Catherine at Avignon does
is akin to soaring”
"a thought-provoking, uplifting production
that leaves the audience
hopeful for a better world"
