SLUT

The short play, SLUT, written by leading female Australian playwright, Patricia Cornelius, ‘explores the life and perceived crimes of Lolita, a schoolgirl whose sexual confidence both frightens and fascinated her peers’. True to her form, Cornelius’s writing is both gritty and beautifully poetic, giving a voice to a certain class of people that are never well represented on stage, making the dislikable likeable and telling universal truths through ‘broken souls, in a broken world’. SLUT explores how they way women are treated and raised shapes them, a culture of internalised misogyny and sexual expression and oppression. I’m positive that any women can relate to at least one point in this play, and I want to help put an end to misogynistic, patriarchal views on women’s sexuality.entitlement<br><br>https://dailyreview.com.au/patricia-cornelius-slut-shaming-gender-inequity-theatre-pathetic/<br>If you have time, I encourage you to watch the movie Lolita (the most recent version).<br><br>Wear something you are comfortable and confident in, and that you can move around in.
