Back by popular demand following a sell-out performance at Women in Theatre and Screen’s (WITS) Festival Fatale and a nomination for Best Ensemble at the 2016 Sydney Theatre Awards, the critically acclaimed production of SLUT is back for a full Sydney season.

Lolita is a slut. So named, so celebrated, until one day she isn’t. The voice of the patriarchy seeps in, it bubbles up, ingested, internalised. SLUT plays in the grey area of sexual empowerment and dangerous sexualisation. This is a space peopled entirely by young women; Lolita and her girl gang. In SLUT girls evolve before our eyes; their personalities are in the crucible of adolescence, their potential is unlimited. This is the story of women growing into their bodies, owning their bodies and their bodies being owned by others.

This brutal and poetic exploration of the sexuality of young women in contemporary society written by one of Australia’s finest playwrights, Patricia Cornelius, tells a familiar and heartbreaking tale.

"...an astonishing and unmissable experience. Directed with great verve and nuance by Erin Taylor, Slut is a production that delivers dynamic truth and theatre with every minute of its 35. A Must See."
Diana Simmonds - StageNoise

"The production has evolved, with an extended sound design by Nate Edmondson, which matches the poetry of Cornelius’s language bar-for-bar...the show is still a must-see. ★★★★"
Ben Neutze - Daily Review

"Whilst the script speaks for itself, the robust ensemble brought authentic and sincere characters to life; a stripped-back, strong and engaging performance. ★★★★½ "
Anna Gambrill - ArtsHub

"The cast members are uniformly strong. Keogh’s portrayal of the tragic central character is excellent, engaging the audience completely in her story from start to finish. 4/5."
Tim Garratt - Theatre People

"It’s ballsy and requires supreme conviction, which this cast has in spades...it is wonderful that many more Sydney theatre-goers have the opportunity to see this play on stage.
Emily Saint-Smith - The AU Review

"All five actors are very strong and the tautness of their performance is highly enjoyable...  Jessica Keogh’s depiction of Lolita is suitably vivacious yet tragic, perfectly presenting the playwright’s perspective of a victimised and very sad protagonist."
Suzy Wrong - Suzy Goes See
