YOU'RE SO F**KING CROYDON

WRITTEN & PREFORMED BY KATIE HURLEY
PRODUCED BY NINA VON DER WERTH
‘You’re SO F**king Croydon!’ is an exploration of noughties club culture, female resilience and home. Feat. David Bowie.

“It was my nemesis, I hated Croydon with a real vengeance. It represented everything I didn’t want in my life, everything I wanted to get away from. I think it’s the most derogatory thing I can say about somebody or something: ‘God, it’s so f**king Croydon!”- David Bowie

You’re SO F**king Croydon! is an autobiographical piece by writer performer Katie Hurley that explores noughties club culture and the female experience, interweaving music, dance, comedy, spoken word and Croydon celebrities.

Featuring interactive moments and a fun, ‘Love of Huns’ aesthetic, You’re SO F**king Croydon holds up a mirror to societal perceptions of women from places like Croydon: predominantly working class with a notoriously negative reputation. Challenging Bowie’s quote, it looks at stereotypes attached to certain locations, in particular trying to dispel the notion that being from a particular place diminishes someone’s worth.

At its essence, it’s the story of a woman triumphing over adversities. It’s a stomp through pop culture, identity and destiny, blending comedy with profound exploration and personal narrative with societal perceptions. It’s a ‘f*ck you’ in pink to the can’ts and won’ts and a strut down Croydon High Street in 2003. Featuring David Bowie.
