“How can you fly when you can’t even walk?”

Katy Carr is a bit of a tomboy, with an overactive imagination. She has a secret den at the back of her neighbour’s garden where she regales her friends and siblings with fantastic tales and where she likes nothing better than to climb trees.

Katy life changes when she falls from a makeshift swing and suffers life changing spinal injuries.

KATY is about how a regular 11-year-old faces up to the challenges of every 11-year-old - a new school, new teachers, new classmates (and an old foe), parents that ‘just don’t understand’, with the added challenge of being a new wheelchair user.

Taking inspiration from physios, nurses, patients, her family and her fantasy figure - Smash Hornet, Katy refuses to be defined by her disability. Katy learns how to dream again. She takes her wheelchair to the Skate Park and shows us just how you can, “fly when you cannot even walk”.

Written by Tom Bidwell, adapted from Jacqueline Wilson’s novel Katy, which in turn was an update of the classic 19th Century Novel “What Katy Did” Katy stars Chloe Lea in the lead role.
