Title: Muff + MinusOneSister + SHIT
Author: Badham, Van; Cornelius, Patricia; Barnes, Anna
Price: $34.99

Three confronting and provocative plays about women.

Muff by Van Badham
Winner of the 2014 NSW Premier’s Award, the Nick Enright Award for Playwriting, Muff explores women, sex and relationships; a horrific, random rape of a young woman and the threads from this event that continue to wrap and bind their way into lives years after the physical injuries have healed.

MinusOneSister by Anna Barnes
Sophocles & Electra is furiously wrenched into the present and told from the point of view of the teenagers. Eternal obsessions mingle with the obsessions of our times, bloodshed goes hand in hand with Bacardi Breezers and Facebook, and a chilling portrait emerges of a family irreversibly shattered by grief and guilt.

Shit by Patricia Cornelius
Shit takes us into the world of three women – Billy, Bobby and Sam –three women from a violent, impoverished underclass who have landed in prison together after a vicious incident. These are the underbelly of womenhood we as a society so rarely want to admit exist.

The work of Patricia Cornelius is being featured at the Sydney Festival this year. Shit is in production at the Seymour Centre and there are readings of two of her plays, Love and Slut also at the Seymour Centre.  As an added bonus Patricia will be in conversation with Wesley Enoch where she'll discuss the role of women in theatre and how to make theatre that packs a punch.
