Long Live The Little Knife

Wednesday 25 March 2015 @ 7:30 pm

By Fire Exit

Originally commissioned by the RSC and British Museum, Long Live The Little Knife is a dynamic, boisterous and absurd theatre piece about castration, forgery and blind drunkenness. It’s been a huge success, garnering a total of 18 four star reviews so far from sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival, Brighton Festival and Norfolk and Norwich Festival.

Liz and Jim are a husband and wife team of forgers who have risen to great heights and fallen to great depths in their careers as con artists and counterfeiters. They are caught in a turf war over fake vintage handbags. They need to find £250 grand in protection money. Their Big Boss, The Wee Man, convinces them to undertake a harebrained mission to up their game and become the world’s greatest art forgers. There’s only one problem. They can’t paint.

In this fast-paced, provocative and boisterous caper Leddy finds the incongruous connections between verbatim theatre, free-market economics, the psychology of ‘truth’ and a castrated labradoodle in a classic Chanel clutch bag.

★★★★ “Dazzling… wild… hugely enjoyable” The Guardian ★★★★ “Fantastic… brilliant… coup de théâtre.” The Scotsman ★★★★ “Perceptive… penetrating… what a story.” The Herald
