Billy, Bobby and Sam are coming back after a sold-out season of SHIT in 2016. These girls don’t believe in anything. They’re mean, foul-mouthed, downtrodden, hard-bitten, utterly damaged and the kind of women most would see on the street and decide to walk the other way. 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.
The first Australian artists ever to be invited to the Teatro Biennale di Venezia in 2019, award-winning writer/director team Patricia Cornelius and Susie Dee bring SHIT and LOVE to fortyfivedownstairs for limited seasons before traveling to Venice to present at the 47th International Festival of Theatre.
