Figs In Wigs: Little Wimmin

Time:7.30pm
Venue:J2 (seated show)
Price:Pay What You Feel (suggested £12.50)

Figs in Wigs are back (again), and this time they’ve got their period (dresses).

An apocalyptic, live art, feminist ‘adaptation’ of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel Little Women.

Wild, chaotic and cosmically comical, the cast of five women turn the novel into a darkly funny, and sickeningly surreal show with their distinctive punky and clunky perspective.

Little Wimmin dissolves the traditional canon to make way for the doomed future of humankind. The themes of the book are shown in stark contrast to contemporary calamity to ask what’s changed, for better or for worse? And if we are all going to be underwater in 12 years, does it even matter?

Prepare to laugh at the traditions of theatre and poke fun at people’s obsession with ‘the classics’ as the Figs use the story as their very own trojan horse, turning it on it’s head before dismantling it entirely and mutating it into an unrecognisable cartoon catastrophe that talks of climate change, astrology and the infinite nature of the universe.

P.S. Beth dies.
