The sell-out show and its electrifying, hard-bitten, conventionally ‘ugly’ women are back for more.

Following a sell-out season at the 2017 Sydney Festival, the compelling, raw and powerful play, SHIT, by Patricia Cornelius will take to the stage in an exclusive return season at The Seymour Centre in Sydney this July.


What happens when a girl spits, or swears, or screams, or laughs too loudly, or she fights, or cuts her hair too short, and wears too much lipstick? Out of control girls, angry girls, nasty girls are a sight to behold. This is a work about three such girls, Billy, Bobby and Sam. In it there is not a single moment when they transcend their ugliness. SHIT examines the intersections of class and misogyny. It is provocative and tragic, heartbreaking, bracing and bitterly funny.
