The Lost Letters Of Cathy G (Paul Harry Allen / Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

Letter writing is the old timey way of sharing Facebook statuses from over the course of a week to ten days, comedian Paul Harry Allen explains, as he uses letters to bring his audience on a trip through the 1960s in this charmingly funny show. By riffling through the correspondences of one Cathy G during her formative years, which he happened upon in a junk shop, he entices the audience to join him in his obsession with the lives of strangers. Innocently sweet and very funny, Allen manages to enthrall his audience in the summer loves of this girl and the characters that she comes across, to  give a nostalgic and engaging look at our histories.

Laughing Horse @ Finnegan’s Wake, until 24 Aug (not 4, 11, 18), 2.30pm.
