Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum with Expats
Holden Street Theatres' Edinburgh Fringe Award 2019 in assoc. with Sh!t Theatre, Show and Tell and Soho Theatre present
WINNER of the Holden Street Theatres' Edinburgh Fringe Award 2019 & The Scotsman Fringe First Award 2019.
"Magnificent Fringe legends" (TimeOut London) Sh!t Theatre make their Adelaide debut with their multi award-winning bold, funny and political show.
Celebrating their final year as Europeans, island-monkeys Becca & Louise got invited to the European Capital of Culture in Malta. They went to drink rum with Brits abroad but found a lot more than they expected. From one 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.
A rollicking and riotous exploration of immigration and home.
