Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum With Expats

Show And Tell in association with Soho Theatre

Wed 8 & Thurs 9 Apr, 8pm

2019 The Scotsman Fringe First Award winner

Celebrating their final year as Europeans, island-monkeys Becca and Louise got invited to the 2018 European Capital of Culture in Malta, having missed out on Hull last year. They went to drink rum with Brits abroad but found a lot more than they expected.

Lads on tour Sh!t Theatre want to talk about home, your home, what we are doing in your home, what you might be doing in our home and how cheap the beers are. From our small island in the sea to another small island in the sea, Sh!t Theatre found mystery and murder in the fight to be European.

Here it is: another excuse for the multi award-winning Sh!t Theatre to get drunk on stage.

Co-commissioned by South Street.

Sh!t Theatre are multi award-winning performance art duo Becca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole. Their previous shows to tour the UK, and visit South Street, include: DollyWould, Letters to Windsor House and Women’s Hour.

'The show is a masterclass in controlled chaos… Sh!t Theatre’s irreverent, energetic, rum-fuelled new show is the company’s best yet.'

- The Stage

'Sh!t Theatre have always combined performance art anarchy with bags of humour, slyly sliced by more serious concerns. In Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum With Expats, it feels like this formula has reached its fullest expression… This is political theatre that is true, and hilarious, and horrifying.'

- The Independent

'...as usual, [they] throw everything – storytelling, songs, comedy patter and multimedia – into the show, and much of it (in the nicest possible way) is a delightful, riotous mess… A timely piece.'

- London Evening Standard
