Sh!t Theatre Drink Rum With Expats
A Performance by Sh!t Theatre

Just before Brexit, Rebecca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole, better known as Sh!t Theatre, were invited to Valletta, the capital of Malta that had been named the European Capital of Culture for 2018. The plan: to talk to British expats at The Pub, a local expat pub, and drink rum.
What starts as a fast-paced, entertaining revue of stories, songs and video clips gradually takes on darker shades. Malta, the „little island in the big sea“, is not only a port of call for Britons who can afford to live there, but is also a major stop along the route for many refugees. In addition to the refugee issue, there is also the death of Daphne Caruana Galizia, an investigative Maltese journalist, who was killed in a bombing in 2017.
A rollicking, riotous show about immigration and home, with lots of rum, crowd-surfing, sea shanties and one dog. Just like a chat in the pub about things that are too serious for a chat in the pub. Or maybe not?
Performed in English.
WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY Sh!t Theatre
DIRECTOR Adam Brace
JEN-ERAL MANAGER Jen Smethurst
DATES May 4 and 5, 7.30 pm
