SHIT by Patricia Cornelius

Dates: 11 Mar - 14 Mar

Show Time: 8.30pm (2pm matinée)

Tickets: €16

Out of control girls. Angry girls. Nasty girls. They are a sight to behold. Terrifying, electrifying, funny and awful, they’re everything women shouldn’t be, and we hate them.


Grown-up little girls who spit, swear, scream, threaten, piss in the street, flash their tits and laugh too loudly. Who fight, really fight – head butts and smashed cheekbones and midnight visits to the emergency room. Who fuck too much, or not at all, wear too much makeup, or none at all… and don’t believe in anything.


They’re mean, foul-mouthed, downtrodden, hard-bitten and utterly damaged. They believe the world is shit, that their lives are shit, that they are shit. This is a story about three of those women. Their names are Billy, Bob and Sam.


Critically acclaimed as one of the best plays on Australian stages in recent years, SHIT is a provocative and tragic, heart-breaking and bitterly funny four-time Green Room Award winner from acclaimed playwright Patricia Cornelius. Now in a new Irish production from THISISPOPBABY, this is a compelling, raw, powerful and timely treatise on class, misogyny and poverty.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
