Hand Me Down

Kate Craddock, Steve Gilroy

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


Hand me down is a one woman show co created by Kate Craddock and Steve Gilroy. Originally concept and performed by Kate Craddock, Hand me down is a one-woman show that unfolds stories from the everyday objects and unwanted clothing of the second hand shop, to ask what it means to be charitable in today’s world of instant gratification and must-have bags. Immersive, intimate and funny – this is a little piece of charity shop heaven. Hand-me-Down was created by a team of north east artists in Newcastle upon Tyne. Sweet yet sharp and intertwining fact with fiction, it presents a series of extraordinary characters, connected by their abandoned possessions and a willingness to ‘give’.
