What if being scared is just you starting an adventure? And so it is that a morning’s outing to the shops turns into a 24-hour odyssey where our heroine-in-pyjamas tries to locate her brave bone.A new solo performance of songs and spoken word from Catherine Ireton exploring small acts of courage and how they can be as contagious as fear.

Catherine is an award winning musician and theatre-maker and this
show is a showcase for her ability as a performer as singer and
storyteller. This is a small show with big heart and a simple message. It will make audiences laugh and cry and like all of Catherine’s work it aims to leave you feeling better about the world.
