Catherine needs help

Anita has arrived

Catherine is a funny, charming highly intelligent misfit. And Catherine is a tortured soul. But it's ok; because Catherine has Anita. When the two strike up a friendship all hell very slowly breaks loose. As their unlikely relationship develops, their world escalates into a violent and unstoppable cycle of destruction and revenge.

Told over the course of decades, Catherine and Anita is a comedy about heartbreak, mental illness, and ultimately how those in need so often slip through life's cracks.

Actress Sarah Roy started her long term collaboration with internationally acclaimed playwright, director Derek Ahonen, in 2011 when Roy starred in the highly critically acclaimed 'Bring Us the Head of Your Daughter' - a new production by the award winning Amoralist Theatre Company in New York of which Ahonen is the co-founder. They have since gone on to collaborate on a number of plays staged in New York. Catherine & Anita marks their Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut.

Derek Ahonen's notable works as part of the Amoralist Theatre Company include The Pied Pipers of The Lower East Side, Happy in the Poorhouse, The Bad and The Better, and The Qualification of Douglas Evans.

Sarah Roy trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. As part of the Amoralist Theatre Company she starred in Bring Us The Head Of Your Daughter, Animals and Plants, and The Bad And The Better. Other work includes The Drunken City, Glue (E4) and most recently a reading of Harpo and Aleck alongside Stephen Fry and Matthew Horne.
