Sh!t Box!

Hey, Happy Boxing Day! As we all know, it's custom at this time of year to sit around a box and stare at it, so why not celebrate with the whole family by sitting round the ol'radio box tonight and listening to Sh!t Theatre at 11pm on Resonance 104.4FM? It's the first ever broadcast of our half-hour special on Resonance's 'Cabaret Time', and you can listen here:, or Londoners can tune into 104.4 FM...

Merry Shitmas!

We've had a fun, busy, cut-price-energy-drink week with 'Copyright Christmas', a last minute gig at Duckie's Christmas party at the Barbican last Friday and Cabaret Futura on Sunday. Cabaret Futura is over at the Paradise in West London and appears to be where rich bohemians go to drink, make merry and eventually die. Our performance was described by a jolly posh man called Don Boyd as 'very naughty'.

Two days until our brief Xmas break means you only have six more days to catch our Corporate Responsibility Recycling Centre in Duckie's 'Copyright Christmas' at the Barbican! Get your anti-capitalist bargain-tastic 20 quid tickets here!:

And here's a sneak preview vid of the show from the Telegraph:
Featuring Scottee, Bird la Bird, Harold Offeh, Dickie Beau and designer Robin Whitmore. Not featuring Sh!t Theatre for some reason. Maybe they didn't want to give too much away. The stampede for tickets if word got out that we were in the show every single day would probably be too much for the Barbican's computer system.

Sh!t Theatre present: a Television pitch for the Radio, or, a Radio pitch for the Television will be broadcast at 11pm GMT on Boxing Day (26/12 for our many foreign fans). Londoners can listen at 104.4 FM, and everyone else can listen here:
Fun for all the family! Apart from the dead babies bit. And the AIDS bit. And all the swearing.

We are very excited to announce that we will be Escalator East Supported Artists 2012 and will be working in conjunction with the Colchester Arts Centre and the Junction in Cambridge from January. More info on that coming soon!

Wishing everyone a very Shit Christmas,

Becca and Louise xxx

Sh!t in The Standard

Reviews are out of Duckie's 'Copyright Christmas', a great one here from The Guardian:

And a mixed review in the Evening Standard, but her 'favourite section' is Sh!t Theatre's Recycling Centre!

December Dates

Coming up soon: Brand new first ever Sh!t Theatre Podcast! 'London, New York, Edinburgh, Goole', a live, Yorkshire-based, minute-by-minute account of our trip to Goole. Not going to give anymore away, but stay tuned for that exciting step into the world of podcasting. Just as soon as we've edited the 27 separate audio files which - from what I've suffered through so far - mostly consist of us saying 'Goooooollle! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLE!'
I say 'I've suffered through' because Louise has thus far, as she puts it, refused to 're-live the trauma'.

06/12 'NAOTY Auditions' @ Rich Mix, Bethnal Green
08/12 'Sex on Trial' @ The Resistance Gallery, Bethnal Green (shock horror, brand new material!)
16/12 'Cop's Christmas Cabaret' @ Ta Na at the Old Police Station, Deptford (shock horror, brand new Christmassy material!)
19/12 'Cabaret Futura' @ The Paradise, Kensal Green
10-31/12 (except Mondays) Duckie's 'Copyright Christmas' @ The Barbican
'Sh!t Theatre's Television pitch for the Radio' on Resonance 104.4 FM at some point around Christmas TBC.

Sh!t Theatre on the Simpsons. So we auditioned and had a read-through to have a guest appearance on The Simpsons the other week. They decided it wouldn't work out; repeated uses of the word 'Shit'  and our constant references to the dead babies of political figures wasn't suitable. Still, we got Apu's autograph, and here's a photo of our audition:
