Introducing: The Team powering MOTH

You thought we had done all our introductions? Oh no! Think again.

Today we unveil the engine room, the generator, no, the powerhouse that keeps this MOTH ticking over. 

Just 2 days after International Women's Day (always late to the party), we're going to introduce and celebrate the 3 women who are guiding MOTH to it's North-West premiere.

Here they are:

Catt Belcher, Associate Producer:


Catt has recently graduated from the University of Manchester with a first class BA(Hons) in English Literature and Drama. She now works as a freelance Producer, based in Manchester. 


Training includes Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse (YEP Producers) Central School of Speech and Drama (Short Course), and Stage ’65 Youth Theatre.

Recent Credits: FLARE Festival of New Theatre, Come Closer: Speak What You Feel (Royal Exchange Theatre, Birmingham Rep, Talawa Theatre Company), The Great Big Noise Festival (Royal Exchange Theatre), Come Closer: Tatton Park Flower Show (Royal Exchange Theatre, Bruntwood) , The Birthday Party, Punk Rock (JustTalk TC: Studio Theatre, Salisbury), Betrayal (JustTalk TC: The Mill Arms, Romsey) Polly & Gordon (JustTalk TC: The King's Arms, Salford & The Mill Arms, Romsey) & The Room (JustTalk TC: Joshua Brooks). 

I love working with contemporary writing like MOTH. It’s bold, playful and ambitious. Unlike anything I’ve seen on the Manchester fringe scene before.
— Catt
