Celebrating their final year as Europeans, island monkeys Becca and Louise got invited to the 2018 European Capital of Culture in Malta. Lads on tour and ‘the rising stars of performance art’ (Telegraph) Sh!t Theatre went to drink rum with Brits abroad but found mystery and murder in the fight to be European. Here it is, another excuse for the multi award-winning Sh!t Theatre to get drunk on stage. **** (Guardian). **** (Sunday Times). **** (Scotsman).

An amazing show tonight, bowled over by the mix of political comment and riotous insobriety, but most of all by the amount of heart behind it

A really well thought out show. The attention to detail was amazing and I couldn’t stop thinking about it afterwards. I would recommend this show to everyone.

It all started when Becca and Louise were invited by their friend Charlie to perform in Malta. At the 2018 European Capital of Culture in Malta, to be exact. Without a show to perform at the time, they went to Malta to do research, to interview Expat Brits and to...

The Independent (5/5 stars) 117 days ago

Sh!t Theatre’s shows have always combined performance art anarchy with bags of humour, slyly sliced by more serious concerns. In their new show, Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum Expats, it feels like this formula has reached its fullest expression. They tackle some of the most pressing issues of our time –...

Welcome to The Pub – footie on the telly, and our two hosts in pirate jackets and denim shorts, faces painted with what appears to be the St George cross.  Grab yourself some Cisk beer and a bit of cheese. Cisk beer? Ah right, we’re in Malta, and Cisk is...

I honestly don’t know where to start. Sh!t Theatre’s latest show is so big, so packed full of ideas, jokes, booze, music, joy, despair – there’s no ‘right’ way to approach it. It’s a story about the island of Malta, where Rebecca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole were invited to put...

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (5/5 stars) 121 days ago

So much of the fun of watching Louise Mothersole and Rebecca Biscuit, aka Sh!t Theatre, has been in their sense of wayward, devil-may-care abandon. Like theatrical punks, they have gloried in the rough edges o...

Exeunt 122 days ago

Louise Mothersole and Becca Biscuit are having the time of their fucking lives and we’re all invited. Imperial epaulettes jangling on their shoulders as they pour beers for the audience and proffer cubes of cheese, screaming the words to Simply Red’s “Fairground” (a terrible, terrible song, good God), English flag...

The Stage [paywall] (5/5 stars) 128 days ago

Shit Theatre’s Rebecca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole do a very convincing job of suggesting that their work is slapdash and thrown together. They make it seem like they accidentally happened upon their subjects – and there may be a sliver of truth in this – but their shows are always...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 128 days ago

Louise Mothersole and Rebecca Biscuit of Sh!t Theatre have been invited to Malta to develop a new show. For many expats, Malta is a place to live and enjoy the sun. For others, it is a gateway to Europe and a stop over for migrant ships. Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum...

Time Out (4/5 stars) 130 days ago

Like a pair of younger, drunker Louis Therouxs, Becca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole – aka Sh!t Theatre – have a habit of stumbling into situations where they would seem to be catastrophically out of their depth, only to emerge with work twice as profound and a kerjillian times funnier than that...
