She’s off her trolley. Nuttier than a fruitcake. A couple of kangaroos loose in the top paddock”. Women have long been locked up, medicated, pathologized and silenced by a simple label - ‘crazy’.

BATSHIT is a wildly theatrical, unexpectedly funny, and deeply intimate story of female madness. A requiem for Leah’s grandmother Gwen, BATSHIT draws on personal stories to explore the myths, fantasies and fears that keep us compliant, and the systems that let us down.

Created by the killer creative team behind BITCH ON HEAT and TERROR AUSTRALIS, this is the third solo work by psycho siren Leah Shelton, directed by Olivier award-winning performance artist Ursula Martinez (UK). Strapped in, belted up and dressed to kill, psycho siren Leah Shelton returns to the stage with a horror show of pop psychology, guttural physicality, and Prozac-laden humour.
