Katy Cavanagh to star in stage play in native north-east

Katy Cavanagh, who played Coronation Street's Julie Carp, will be starring on stage in her native north-east.  Katy was born in Whitley Bay, and will be starring on stage at Newcastle's Live Theatre in the World Premiere of Iris.

Iris is a heady cocktail of caustic humour and tender pathos from writer Alison Carr. 

No one’s touched the buffet, there’s a big gap on the wall where a mirror’s fallen off and something is stinking the place out. Julie and Ruby are sisters coming to terms with the death of formidable matriarch Iris who still manages to control their lives from beyond the grave. On the night of the funeral, Julie gets off with Gerry, the crime scene cleaner. Maybe that’ll help. It doesn’t.

When their mother’s unusual bequest unearths a story that leaves some indelible marks, something more than a deep clean is needed.

Alison Carr was a winner of the 40th Anniversary Live Theatre Bursary in 2013 and is a member of the Traverse 50 group of writers. Iris is her first full length commission for Live Theatre.
