Scary Shit is a show about friendship, being a woman and asking for help.

Quirky and outrageous dance theatre; Rhiannon Faith brings a real-life experience to the stage.

A courageous experiment, Scary Shit is a show where two young women attend

therapy to learn about themselves, the world and imagine a future without fear.
