Stupidhead! is a comedy musical about having dyslexia. It’s also about how being a human is really embarrassing… like all of the time. The winner of Best New Performance Text at the 2015 SummerWorks Festival, Stupidhead! returns to Theatre Passe Muraille’s Mainspace with brand new material and brand new songs. In Stupidhead! performer/playwright Katherine Cullen shares true stories about her dyslexia, the way she interacts with the world, and the way the world interacts with her. Cullen’s script – directed by the Dora nominated Aaron Willis and accompanied by lyricist/musician Britta Johnson’s original songs – makes for a show that is painfully funny, brutally honest, and totally relatable for anyone who feels like they do things a bit different.

Reviews

★★★★ “Katherine Cullen is disarmingly goofy and self-deprecating in Stupidhead!, a semi-musical account of her struggles with dyslexia.”Torontoist

 

“A charismatic celebration of what it means to be human, including what it means to pick yourself up after an epic fail.”Mooney on Theatre
