What is it this time? Oh, is it unemployment? Is there a crisis? Did the government do something wrong again? No, it’s a show about Dolly Parton. And we still f*cking love her.
It’s about country legend Dolly Parton, but also about cloning, branding, immortality and death. It’s enjoyed a sell-out tour of the UK, including a month at London’s Soho Theatre, and now its back at the Fringe for two weeks only.
SH!T THEATRE are the ‘rising stars of performance art’ (Telegraph) comprising Becca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole. They are Fringe First award winners, Total Theatre award winners, Arches Brick award winners and Amnesty International award nominees.
Supported by Norwich Arts Centre, Camden People’s Theatre and Arts Council England.
‘Exhilaratingly daft – Sh!t Theatre overshare their love for Dolly Parton, with delightful results’
‘An icon is unpacked, satirised and worshipped all at once – gleefully scrappy and frequently silly’
‘Wonderfully daft – they deliver a tour-de-force’
‘Part crazed celebration, part sophisticated dissection – the aesthetic is lovably scrappy’
‘Funny, messy and unpredictable’
★★★★ The Scotsman
‘Enjoyably slippery, slyly clever – it’s also just very good fun’
