What’s on in London: Who Murdered My Cat?
The latest show from Roann Hassani-McCloskey sets out to solve a deep mystery – who murdered her cat? This feline mystery is the jumping off point for for an investigation of growing up queer and Arab in 1990s Wembley.
Who Murdered My Cat? is an autobiographical storytelling show which unravels childhood memories and how our formative experiences inform what we do and who we become as we grow up. Are our memories questionable, or do they lead to more questions? Can one woman solve all of these mysteries?
Roann’s storytelling is a celebration of her identity. Dismantling the stereotype of coming out as LGBTQ in a Muslim family, it honours the joy within her family – the embarrassing moments, the shared memories, humour and empathy through childhood to adulthood that make us who we are.
Who Murdered My Cat will run at the Arcola Theatre on 8 July
