Only girls get called sl*ts, really. Sl*t tells of the spectacular rise and fall of one young girl, as told through the eyes of the women around her. Laced with poetic insight and powerful themes, Sl*t is a harrowing exploration of women in modern culture.
It follows the story of one young girl's rise from childhood to womanhood, the pressure to conform and the constraints that social labels have on her. Based on real life events, an all-female cast presents this AWGIE award winning Australian play, challenging audiences to examine views on gender, individualism, equality and the pressure to conform.
Presented by the Empire Theatre's elite youth company, the IMPACT Ensemble, Sl*t will feature a myriad of performance forms to portray this mesmerising piece of theatre.
