Oh look, Sh!t Theatre again, what is it this time? Oh, is it unemployment? Is there a crisis? Is the government doing something wrong again?
No it’s a show about Dolly Parton.
We fucking love her.
Following the Fringe First award-winning, Total Theatre award-nominated sell-out hit Letters to Windsor House, Sh!t Theatre return in a bold, adventurous new show.
“Two talented, funny performers taking great delight in amusing themselves and us: literally titting about, and all the better for it.” ★★★★ Time Out
“DollyWould‘s slyly clever construction can be brain-bending if you let it, but it’s also just very good fun: their brilliant comic timing ensures proper guffaws too. Great stuff.” ★★★★ What’s On Stage
“It’s actually some really astute cultural criticism: a Theory of Dolly, if you like.” ★★★★ Fest
“As impressive, funny and thoughtful as ever and the show’s sudden and unexpected turns are what will keep you entertained – and not without raising some subtle issues through the brash fun of it all.” ★★★★ To Do List
With contributions by Russell Lucas.
Supported by Arts Council England, Norwich Arts Centre and The Peggy Ramsay Foundation.
DollyWould was a Spring Festivals co-commission in 2016.
