Sibling rivalry. Olympic ambition. Mark Todd fever-dreams. A very sexy horse. The Shit Kid is a one-person play about one mediocre person.
Sharni teaches rich kids to ride horses while her twin brother wins Olympic medals. But Sharni has a plan. She's going to buy the sexiest horse in town and get to the Olympics herself. The only thing standing in her way is a baby, a lack of cash and a shitty temperament.
Written and performed by the award-winning writer and comedian, Sarah Harpur (Kāi Tahu). Directed by award-winning, multi-talented, Carrie Green (Ngāti Porou).
Come see the development season of The Shit Kid before it gallops across the Aotearoa festival circuit.
‘Harpur’s material is outstanding. It’s complex, funny, rich in great jokes but it also deepens deceptively.’ - Michael Gilchrist, Theatreview
‘Like a fresh lime juice margarita in a sea of flat beer, Harpur’s energy rises above the pack.’ – Maryanne Cathro, Theatreview
