Dee & Cornelius / Australia


Written by Patricia Cornelius and directed by Susie Dee, SHITis a compelling, raw and powerful play which examines the intersections of class and misogyny. It is provocative and tragic, heartbreaking, bracing and bitterly funny.

What happens when a girl spits, or swears, or screams, or shouts, or pulls down her pants to ‘moon’ someone from a car, or she laughs too loudly, or she fights, really fights, head butts and punches with her fists, or cuts her hair too short, and wears too much lipstick or none at all? Out of control girls, angry girls, nasty girls are a sight to behold. They’re terrifying, electrifying, they’re everything girls shouldn’t be, and we hate them.

This is a work about three such girls, Billy, Bobby and Sam. In it there’s not a single moment when they transcend their ugliness. There’s no indication of a better life - or, in fact, any inner life. They don’t believe in anything. They’re mean, foul-mouthed, downtrodden, hard-bitten, utterly damaged women. They’re neither salt of the earth nor sexy. They love no one and no one loves them. They believe the world is shit, that their lives are shit, that they are shit.
