The night cats are out on the streets of St Kilda and another girl is pushed from a car. She picks herself up and staggers precariously into the dark on her four-inch heels. A mysterious woman offers her help under the gaze of an unlikely angel. A bewildered man crosses her path and struggles to connect with her. Confused and desperate, she’s forgotten everything she wants to remember and can only remember what she wants to forget.
The Cat’s Paw is an exploration of one young woman’s experiences in the world of prostitution, pimping, drugs and self-harm. The play is a response to raunch culture and its biggest benefactor—the ever expanding sex industry.
"The Cat’s Paw is one of those rare plays that is completely honest in its realisation of its confronting subject-matter without coming off as too moralistic... Croyden is to be commended for highlighting issues of such relevance in such a powerful drama."—ArtsHub
