This November our Soho Rising festival hosts a bunch of the brightest new Soho Theatre Labs voices, over a fortnight.
Hi! Nice to meet you, what’s your name?
We’re Rebecca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole, collectively Sh!t Theatre
Where are you from?
Currently North London. You know the Standard published a thing before Xmas about the ‘most purchased items online’ per area of London. South was an organic blueberry punnet, West was Ruinart Champagne, East was £1 false eyelashes and North was the book ‘Sapiens’ by Yuval Noah Harari. Which we both own.
What brings you here?
You’re putting our show on aren’t you? Isn’t that what is going on? We’re really looking forward to that Artist discount on the drinks so please do tell us ASAP if we’ve got this wrong.
Sorry, didn’t get you a drink, what would you like?
Louise will have a large glass of white, Becca will have red. Louise wants you to know that she prefers red but can’t drink it at the moment because she keeps blacking out. Actually we’ll both have a beer.
Some crisps or nuts?
Crisps please. Becca’s uncle used to work at the Kettles factory and bring over experimental flavours for Xmas. Hedgehog was one.
So, what’s so special about your show?
It may or may not be illegal. It’s a true story. It’s award-winning. It’s about London and there are dancing postboxes.
How did the idea of the show come about?
We kept getting old tenants’ mail sent to the flat we rent, huge piles of it that never got re-directed. We got curious and started opening them. This is a sort of Detective Show, or ‘Stalker Cabaret’ if you will.
Do you come here often?
Are you worn out? Because you’ve been running around my brain all evening. That’s Louise’s suggestion of a pick up line and Becca thinks she means ‘running around my mind’. RUNNING AROUND MY BRAIN??? Seriously Louise no wonder you are single.
Where are you going after here…
Tour of the show starts 3 days after our Soho Run. Going in order: Ipswich, Reading, Sheffield, Aldershot, Bristol, Nottingham, Manchester, Derby, Norwich, Newcastle, San Francisco, Colchester and Harlow, then break to go to Edinburgh with our next show DollyWould before the Letters tour continues in the Autumn.
Catch Sh!t Theatre here in Letter to Windsor House before they head off to their World-domination tour.
