Katy Brand: I Was a Teenage Christian

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Wed 24 May, 20:00

Advisory age: 16+



Katy Brand's hit Edinburgh Festival show I Was a Teenage Christian is an honest, fascinating and funny exploration of her self-imposed conversion and total immersion in evangelical Christianity.

One Sunday, aged 13, Katy went to a local church service and became a fundamentalist Christian. From then on she attended church four times a week. For seven years she put the 'fun' into fundamentalism...and the 'mental'. She was an obnoxious, self-important dick, but at least she knew she was going to heaven. Now she's not so sure.  Katy will relive her glory days of certainty and judgement (and unrequited love..) whilst trying to figure out what the hell was going on in her own head.
