The Lost Letters of Cathy G

Whilst in a junk shop, looking for photographs of families I’d never met, I stumbled across a wad of forgotten letters. Dating from 1963-69, they spanned across America, France and Edgware and gave a fantastic insight into how 60s teenagers got their kicks, from miserable French exchange visits to screaming at a Monkees concert. I’m now bringing back my four-star 2010 show, as I have found some of these hopeful groupies and first loves. With a mixture of stand-up and storytelling, I will share my quest to find more.
