Edgeware Forum and Rue De La Rocket
in association with Red Line Productions
By Patricia Cornelius
Edgeware Forum and Rue De La Rocket in association with Red Line Productions present SLUT by Patricia Cornelius at The Old Fitz Theatre from 13 – 24 June.
Back by popular demand following a sell-out performance at Women in Theatre and Screen’s (WITS) Festival Fatale and a nomination for Best Ensemble at the 2016 Sydney Theatre Awards, the critically acclaimed production of SLUT is back for a full Sydney season.
This brutal and poetic exploration of the sexuality of young women in contemporary society written by one of Australia’s finest playwrights, Patricia Cornelius, tells a familiar and heartbreaking tale.
Lolita is a slut. So named, so celebrated, until one day she isn’t. The voice of the patriarchy seeps in, it bubbles up, ingested, internalised. SLUT plays in the grey area of sexual empowerment and dangerous sexualisation. This is a space peopled entirely by young women; Lolita and her girl gang.
“I’m delighted in this team’s commitment to giving this work, which deals so frankly with the complexity of young women and sexuality, a second life,” said playwright Patricia Cornelius.
