Up-and-coming artist and performer Charlotte Armstrong will make her mark in Stratford this weekend.

Her show Therapy Is Expensive (So I Wrote a Cabaret Instead) will be performed in the Courthouse Theatre this Saturday, August 27 from 7.30pm.

The cabaret includes original songs that are full of curveball wit, clever anecdotes and relatable tales of growing up.

Charlotte explores the process of growing up in a world where you don’t fit-in. Opening a can of disasters to mine for the lessons of hindsight, this chaotic quarter-centurion combines punk ukulele and piano-bashing pop songs!

A Q&A with writer-creator Charlotte and director Emma Gough immediately will follow the performance.

On Sunday, Charlotte and Emma shall return to the Courthouse to deliver two separate workshops.

Charlotte shall be running a Theatre Lighting & Tech workshop for people 15 years and over, running from 10am to 11.30am.

At 12.30pm, Emma will conduct a Theatre Making workshop, which shall also run for 90 minutes.

Prospective attendees of the latter workshop are encouraged to wear comfy clothes and bring a bottle of water.
