Local Actress In One Woman Show About Being Sixteen
A local actress is returning to her Staffordshire city home to star in her very own one woman show. Bicycles and Fish, described as a funny and honest tale that explores the right to be a feminist, is Lichfield actress Katie Arnstein's debut one woman show about the day she stopped being a girl and became a woman. The story, which is being told at the Lichfield Garrick theatre on June 22 and 23, tells the tale of 16-year-old Katie living in a village just outside Lichfield, still in school and hopelessly in love. As a result Katie is going to have to face demons, witches and an ogre if she's to win Dan's heart. Well, sort of!

Combining comedy, storytelling and original songs in a performance described by London Pub Theatre as "reminiscent of (the late) Victoria Wood", Katie seeks to talk about why feminism is discovered so much later in life than misogyny and how she, you, or we might change that. Katie is a former member of the Garrick Young Rep and graduated at the Birmingham School of Acting before setting off to London to pursue a career in acting. She has performed in a number of shows including The Blonde Bombshells of 1943, Twelfth Night and The Tempest.
