“Simply ahhhh-mazing.” Heckler
“Ruthless and incisive.” Theatre Press
“Tour de force… Liz Skitch, step into the spotlight and take a bow.” Weekend Notes
“Skitch is a natural mimic, shedding accents and years as easily as she changes costume.” The Age
“Each character is defined only by the choice of wig, shoes and a few accoutrements… and Skitch’s impressive ability to change her entire physicality to match each character.” Theatre People
What’s Spoilt about? “Spoilt delivers a very adept touch on all that is bizarre in a world we call normal and an extremely entertaining yet painfully honest perception of life as we know it.” Heckler
Spoilt is a comic-rollercoaster. Social satirist and clown, Liz Skitch plays five very different and very spoilt women. The show sends up self-indulgence and the self-improvement industry..
These five spoilt women; a reality TV ‘star,’ a celebrity trainer, a botoxed celebrant, a small-dog-loving PR consultant, and a bridezilla collide and compete in the lead up to the wedding of the year.
Flipping the darkside of narcissim and self-improvement sunny-side up, Spoilt is an electric comedy masterpiece. Who knew self-destruction could be this much fun?
