THEATRE ROYAL BACKSPACE, UN­TIL SATUR­DAY, JULY 8 This is a story of three girls – Billy, Bobby and Sam – who defy so­ci­etal ex­pec­ta­tions of what women should and shouldn’t do. The girls are ev­ery­thing fe­males shouldn’t be: foul-mouthed, rude and un­car­ing. They fight, scream and swear too much, which has made au­di­ences and crit­ics take note, and led to the play pick­ing up four Green Room Awards when it pre­miered in 2015. Tick­ets are priced from $20 from fes­ti­val­ofvoices.com/shit
