Figs in Wigs are back (again) and this time they’ve got their period (dresses).
A live art, feminist ‘adaptation’ of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women. Wild, irreverent, and cosmically comical, this production dismantles the traditional canon to make way for the doomed future of humankind.
Prepare to laugh at the traditions of theatre and poke fun at our obsession with ‘the classics’ as the Figs use the story as their very own trojan horse, turning it on its head and mutating it into an unrecognisable cartoon catastrophe that talks about climate change, astrology, and the infinite nature of the universe.
