Sh!t Theatre with Show & Tell presents


Oh look, 2016 Fringe First Award winners Sh!t Theatre again. What is it this time? Oh, is it unemployment? Is there a crisis? Did the government do something wrong again?

No, it’s a show about Dolly Parton. We f*cking love her.

Following the award-winning sell-out hit Letters to Windsor House – which was named one of Time Out London’s top ten theatre shows of the year –   Sh!t Theatre return to HOME with their bold new show. It’s about country legend Dolly Parton, cloning, branding, immortality and death.

DollyWould enjoyed a 100% sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and comes to HOME on its nationwide tour fresh from a four-week off-West End London run.

Sh!t Theatre also make a welcome return to Manchester following their recent collaboration with Contact Young Company She Bangs The Drums performed at Manchester Museum of Science & Industry in March 2018.

★★★★ “Anyone expecting a straightforward tribute will be discombobulated by this show – gloriously so, as it pings off in all directions, a tasty tangle of associative leaps and connections… Enjoyably slippery, slyly clever – it’s also just very good fun.” – What’s On Stage

★★★★ “Wonderfully daft… Neatly makes its point about how much in life is not what it seems… A tour-de-force.” London Evening Standard

★★★★ “There are definitely hints at deeper themes throughout, but it mostly comes across as two talented, funny performers taking great delight in amusing themselves and us: literally titting about, and all the better for it. Exhilaratingly daft – Sh!t Theatre overshare their love for Dolly Parton, with delightful results.” – Time Out

★★★★ “An icon is unpacked, satirised and worshipped all at once… Gleefully scrappy and frequently silly… Idea-stuffed unpacking of a cultural icon performed with energy and verve.” – The Stage

★★★★ “Funny, messy and unpredictable.” – The Scotsman

★★★★★ “A play bursting with themes: cloning, branding, death, decay, feminism… the list goes on.” – British Theatre Guide

“I left the theatre feeling energised and with a huge smile on my face. A must see show.” – Broadway Baby

★★★★ “Two artists at the top of their game… Incredibly intelligent wackiness, not just for fans of Dolly Parton… Hilarious theatrical trickery.” – A Younger Theatre

★★★★ “The perfect performance homage to both singer and sheep… Hilariously bouncy and utterly bonkers.” – Miro Magazine

“In the show’s blend of songs, boobs, and engagement with the politics of performance, it’s certainly a hit.” – Exeunt
