In an audacious protest against the world’s attempts to sexualise and commodify childhood, Kimmings and her 9-year-old niece Taylor decided to take on the global tween machine. They invented Catherine Bennett, a dinosaur-loving, bike-riding, tuna-pasta-eating pop star, and vowed to make her world famous! Bryony became Catherine Bennett and Taylor her manager. So far they’ve been invited to parliament, become friends with Yoko Ono and featured on BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour.
Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model is Taylor’s and Bryony’s theatre show. It’s not for kids.
