Caitlin Simpson
Cait Simpson is a performance artist and writer living in Northampton, MA. In 2015 she wrote the first version of Dirty Words as part of her college senior project, a show that combined her original poetry and music and explored her experiences with relationships, distorted power dynamics, mental illness, and identity. Since then, she has written a whole lot more and continues to rework the show as a fluid piece incorporating new pieces in a way that presents an original show each time. Dirty Words is also the title of her first book- which she plans to finish this summer
