Sh!t in NYC Mark II

Greetings world, many apologies for absence recently, we have been very busy. We have been up to this stuff:

  • Had a lovely time at May 2013 SAMPLED Festival at the Cambridge Junction where we were playing Good Cop Sh!t Cop as part of a new one-to-one performed pitch for our next show, which will be called Strip Search. In Strip Search you might get to see more of Louise's pants, we don't know because we have't written it yet. You can start an online petition for Seeing More Of Louise In Her Pants here: That will take it straight to the government who will deal with the matter appropriately.

  • We were also busy following our true calling as professional dancers. We were asked to do some background humping for the wonderful Tricity Vogue and her entry into the Alternative Eurovision at the London Wonderground. That was lots of fun, and has led to what surely has been inevitable all along, Sh!t Theatre 'starring' (our own words) in a Drag Musical. More info below.

  • We brought our updated version of Job Seekers Anonymous 2013 to the Gate Theatre as part of Dickie Beau's Forest Fringe residency, we had a great time, big thanks to Andy and Dickie for having us!

  • Had a two day workshop at the RVT with superwoman Moira Finucane who worked with us and other Duckie artists on solo projects  - you can see Louise's new piece In Dreams this Friday (24th May) at 'Last Fridays', a new monthly Live Art event at the Visual Collective, curated by Helen Simmons and Lewis Church. Details here:

We are going to be equally busy this month, with the following events and happenings:

  • Following our mega success as backing dancers for Tricity Vogue, Louise and I have been asked to do some Acting and Dancing and Singing in Tricity's new drag action musical Heels of Glory, which previews on 5th July at the Albany Theatre in Deptford. Our years of training at Mile End College of Performing Tricks are finally paying off. Next stop Les Mis.

  • Sh!t Theatre are going BACK TO NEW YORK CITY in July with a US special of Job Seekers Anonymous for Dixon Place's HOT! Festival! New Yorkers can see the show on 20th July, and we are bringing our wonderful technical manager Jen Smethurst with us for the ride.

  • Ed Fringe. 2nd -24th. We've even got a publicist this year. Stay continuously tuned. #BigTime

  • We are performing with our all-female longform improv team The Alphabetties this Sunday (26th May) at the Wilmington Arms, Farringdon and next Thursday (30th May) at the Priory Arms, Stockwell.

We've scheduled in a nap for September.
