The Shit Kid

Thursday, 13th July 2023, 7:30 pm - Friday, 14th July 2023, 7:30 pm

Event Navigation

Sibling rivalry. Mark Todd fever dreams. A very sexy horse. A one-person comedy about one mediocre horse girl on a race to ruin. 

Sharni teaches rich kids to ride horses and deals pony poo on the side, 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. 

All that stands in her way is a baby, a lack of cash, and a shitty temper.
