Love latex and hate the patriarchy? Pour a drink, ditch the leash, and come revel in this twisted rehashing of the vintage sexism that drives how we live and love and fight and f*ck.

“Directed by Ursula Martinez, best known for pulling red hankies out of her vagina, but increasingly the go-to woman to direct alternative cabaret and circus, this late-night show at Soho marks the UK debut of Australian cabaret performer Leah Shelton. Shelton is a self-styled bitch who bites the patriarchy while unpacking a full Pandora’s box of ancient myths, porn, popcorn and pop culture. It should be perfect for Soho and you can accompany it with Fitter or Lucy McCormick: Post Popular – both of which are part of what is very much a female takeover of Soho this December.”


Absurdist lip-synch meets high-camp performance art in this pop-fuelled critique of sexual politics in the age of implied consent. Nothing is sacred as psycho-siren Leah Shelton trawls through a Pandora’s box of ancient myths, porn, pop-culture, instructional records and revenge movie heroines.
Welcome to the doghouse.

Beware. This Bitch bites.

Age Recommendation:18+

Critic reviews

Bitch on Heat might come across less like the growl of an attack dog with the strength to maul its enemies, and more the yelp of a pitiful creature still not resigned to being kicked
