Sh!t Theatre are Louise Mothersole and Rebecca Biscuit. They have lived together for five-and-a-half years now. From their kitchen in Windsor House they’ve been watching a London and a friendship that’s changing. This housing crisis gets personal.
Starting with letters they found in the flat they moved in to, this yet again potentially illegal show by Sh!t Theatre takes advantage of a loophole in the Postal Services Act that says you can open other people’s mail under certain circumstances. This is that certain circumstance….
Stories, song, dodgy landlords, detective work and moving on: The Singing Detectives for Generation Rent.
Commissioned by the Harlow Playhouse and supported by the Arts Council for England. Sh!t Theatre are Associate Artists of Camden People’s Theatre.

“Pertinent social theatre” ★ ★ ★ ★ The Guardian
“A funny, angry, absurdist way is find the romance in being young and skint and reckless in our clusterfuck of a capital” ★ ★ ★ ★ TimeOut
“Brave, bruising and deeply personal view on the housing crisis” ★ ★ ★ ★ The Stage
“A lightly ramshackle, very funny piece of documentary theatre, performed with winning, brimming energy…their aesthetic has considerable scrappy charms – but there’s also a righteous, pulsating anger at the housing crisis at its heart” ★ ★ ★ ★ What’s On Stage
“A performance of utter joy” ★ ★ ★ ★ Fest Mag
