13 - 24 JUNE

Presented in association with Edgeware Forum & Rue De La Rocket

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.

A tough and incendiary look at our culture of victim-blaming and slut-shaming… I hope this production returns to Sydney because it needs to be seen. ★★★★”
Ben Neutze, Daily Review

Like a prayer to the teenage girl… [this production] needs and deserves its own season. So sharp.”
