SHITTY is an anthology: three stories of love, lust and horror on the streets of Sydney. Spooky, sexy and scarily funny, SHITTY is an exploration of just how horrifying it can be to fall in love or lust in a world that we don’t understand and might just be trying to destroy us… literally.

Embarrassing hook-ups, drunken karaoke, broken dreams, waking nightmares, affairs, hauntings, possessions, demons and seances… just another day in the life of our shitty generation. Somewhere between Gothic horror, screwball comedy and The Twilight Zone lies a tour of our worst impulses transforming into our worst nightmares.

WHAT IS 25A? 25A is a Belvoir initiative to support the artists of the future. It has been made by independent and emerging artists. They have produced and marketed it themselves. They get 100% of the box office and the theatre for free. Their task is to make a show for less than $2500. Thanks for supporting the artists of the future.
