About What Girls Are Made Of

A RAW MATERIAL AND TRAVERSE 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, performed with a live band, and directed by the Traverse Theatre’s former Artistic Director 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.

Suitable for ages 14+. Contains some strong language.

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.
