“I have always loved fairytales. My favourite film ever was Beauty and the Beast until we learnt about Stockholm Syndrome in PSHE”.


Sixteen, still in school and hopelessly in love, Katie is about to learn what it means to stand up for yourself and win at life even if it's just for a moment.

Combining comedy, storytelling and original songs, Bicycles and Fish is Katie’s charming award winning debut show about the day she stopped being a girl and became a woman.

Written & performed by Katie Arnstein

Directed by Daniel Goldman

Upcoming Performances



'This is what the world needs now: a raw, honest and personal account of just one reason we need feminism. Arnstein will make you laugh and she made me cry. She’ll give you hope that we can make the world a better place and the courage to stand up and help each other.' 

★★★★★ Fringe Guru

'Non-stop entertainment... I cried, I laughed and at the end, I rose to my feet' 

★★★★★ View from the Cheap Seats

'Genuinely funny and insightful... Guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face, while also having something of substance to say.' 

★★★★ Breaking the Fourth Wall 


'Funny, uplifting and hard hitting. Bicycles and Fish is an impressive debut imbued with warmth, charm and humour with a feminist gut punch.'

★★★★ LondonPubTheatre 


'Blending wittily concise stand-up with songs that combine the musical comedy sensibility of Victoria Wood with the characterful musicality of Gywneth Herbert, this is a seriously impactful hour. And a well constructed one too. Arnstein’s writing is so beautifully rich that you can’t help but get hooked...'
