Join Katie Brennan and face the Quarter-Life Crisis in style at the Wee Coo!
Are you crippled by student debt? Working an unpaid internship? Trying to find Prince Charming on Tinder and spending the majority of your time watching Netflix? Welcome to the life of a modern day twentysomething!
Join actress and blogger Katie Brennan for a new show, packed with music, comedy and cabaret all about living that Quarter-Life Crisis. From facebook to flatshares, weddings to woeful bank accounts, career conundrums to chronically crap sex, come and raise a big glass of gin to all those twentysomethings struggling to find their place in the world.
The Quarter-Life Crisis is a new phenomenon but one that Brennan is certainly not alone in feeling. It’s about being brave in these difficult times, carrying on, being proud of who you are and celebrating what you have achieved in your twenties.
Brennan comments, "I wrote the show (alongside my wonderful MD Joseph Atkins) because I was in a real twentysomething slump. My career was going nowhere, I was skint, single and felt like everyone was achieving life goals whilst I was just treading water. Through writing this show, I learned that no one really knows what they’re doing - even those who LOOK like they’ve got these glossy, pulled-together, social media perfect lives. Those feelings of uncertainty, of feeling like you’re supposed to have achieved certain things by a certain point, like you’re a failure who is never going to make anything of yourself and be a grown-up - those feelings are so REAL."
