Cash Carraway
Skint Estate

Join us in welcoming Cash Carraway, award-winning playwright and writer from South London. Her memoir, Skint Estate, is gritty, profound and darkly funny; a first-hand account of life below the poverty line as a single mother in austerity Britain. In this extraordinary debut, Cash Carraway details the day to day realities of living in poverty in the UK – staying in a women’s refuge whilst pregnant, working in peepshows, having multiple jobs yet relying on food banks and temporary accommodation, finding lifelines in her love for her daughter, community and friendships. Blunt, dignified, and brutally revealing, Skint Estate takes Cash’s personal story and skilfully weaves it into a manifesto for change.

In conversation with Jo Browning Wroe, writer and teacher.

Please note: this event was formerly Kerry Hudson, ‘Lowborn’. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Kerry Hudson will not be attending the Festival. All tickets for Kerry Hudson will be valid for Cash Carraway, or alternately full refunds are available through Cambridge Live box office.
