Come join Figs in Wigs for their live art feminist adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women

Blurring the boundaries of live art, music, theatre, comedy and dance Little Wimmin examines how we think about the past, what’s wrong with the present, and what we’re going to do about the future

If there even is one

Prepare to laugh at the traditions of theatre and poke fun at people’s obsession with ‘the classics’ as the Figs turn the novel on its head before dismantling it entirely and transforming it into an unrecognisable cosmic catastrophe that talks about climate change, astrology and the infinite nature of the universe

REVIEWS

"A fun, silly and extremely entertaining mockery of a classic" ~ Leisure Gal

"Revelling in brazen, absurdist satire, outlandish performance collective Figs in Wigs do anything but revere the 19th-century classic, instead hurling at it an off-kilter blend of feminist performance art, stomach-ache comedy and futuristic dance… The whole production is a boisterous piss-take" ~ The Guardian

"Stuffed with glorious visual and verbal puns… There are moments of sublime humour… A show that requires some effort and forbearance on the part of the audience but does not disappoint those willing to step outside their comfort zone and try something new" ~ British Theatre Guide
