      What Girls Are Made Of

      A Traverse Theatre Company and Raw Material co-production in association with Regular Music It's 1992. In a small town in Fife, a girl is busting to get out into the world and see what's on offer. And an ad in the local paper declares: Band Seeks Singer. Grunge has just gone global, scruffy 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, pull-no-punches 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. Performing with a live band, directed by the Traverse's award-winning Artistic Director Orla O'Loughlin (Meet Me At Dawn, Milk, Swallow), Cora (Midsummer) 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.

      Cost: 10.00 to 22.50
