The Shit Kid

by Sarah Harpur

Sibling rivalry, Olympic ambition. Mark Todd fever-dreams. A very sexy horse. A one-person play about one mediocre person. Shortlisted for the 2022 Adam NZ Play Award.

There's a 'shit kid' in every family. In Sharni's family, it's her. While twin brother Nige is off winning Olympic medals, Sharni teaches rich kids to ride horses while dealing pony poo on the side. But Sharni has a plan. She's going to buy the sexiest horse in town and get to the Olympics herself. The only thing standing in her way is her baby, a lack of intergenerational wealth, and one bad temper.

From award-winning writer and performer of Dead Dads Club, Sarah Harpur, The Shit Kid explores the collision between parenthood and ambition—featuring a $600 hobby horse.

A cheerful, cheeky show with a distinctly Kiwi flavour.
