Louise Orwin

Louise Orwin took part in CPT’s artist development scheme Starting Blocks in 2013, on which she developed her Pretty Ugly project. This innovative documentary-theatre event explored the activities of teenage girls on social media. CPT helped Louise develop the show towards a full production in Oct/Nov 2013 as the headliner in our acclaimed Calm Down, Dear festival of feminism. The show received global publicity, 4- and 5-star reviews – and in autumn 2014 embarked on a UK tour. Also in autumn 2014, Louise staged a work-in-progress of her new project A Girl and a Gun as part of Calm Down Dear 2014. For more info on Louise’s work: www.louiseorwin.com
