Strange Time.

Strange Place.

Strangely Familiar.

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”

Media Culture


“wickedly funny … poetic and whimsical”

Alt Media 

 “Amidst the sin and sarcasm are

startling moments of poetry…

what Catherine at Avignon does

is akin to soaring”  

The Brag


"a thought-provoking, uplifting production

that leaves the audience

hopeful for a better world"
