Patricia Cornelius’ SHIT is rife with ugliness. Billy, Bobby and Sam speak with the voices of those who’ve survived foster care, institutionalisation, and neglect. They love no one and no one loves them. They believe the world is shit, that their lives are shit, that they are shit. Winner of the 2015 Green Room Awards for Independent Theatre: Best Production and Best Writing and shortlisted for the 2016 Victorian Premier’s Award for Drama.
‘Cornelius looks deep into the hearts and minds of those who have been pushed aside, and finds contradictions that are at once complex, difficult, admirable and scary.’ – Ben Neutze, Daily Review
SHIT is part three of a passionate and unflinching collection of three award-winning plays by and about women, featuring an introduction by Alison Croggon.
SHIT is also available in paperback: MUFF / MINUSONESISTER / SHIT
