Batshit

21 – 24 September 2022

New Benner Theatre, Metro Arts, West End


Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival, Leah Shelton’s third solo work explores the history of women who have been locked up, medicated, pathologized and silenced by a simple label – ‘crazy’.

Directed by Olivier award-winning performance artist Ursula Martinez (UK), Batshit promises to be a horror show of pop psychology, guttural physicality, and Prozac-laden humour; a wildly theatrical, unexpectedly funny, and deeply intimate story of female madness. A requiem for Leah’s grandmother Gwen, the show draws on personal stories to explore the myths, fantasies and fears that keep us compliant, and the systems that let us down.
