Figs in Wigs are back and this time they've got their period (dresses). A live art, feminist "adaptation" of Louisa May Alcott's novel Little Women. Wild, irreverent, and cosmically comical, it dismantles the canon, making way for the doomed future of humankind. Prepare to laugh at the theatrical traditions and poke fun at our obsession with "the classics" as the Figs use the story as a trojan horse, turning it on its head and mutating it into an unrecognisable cartoon catastrophe about climate change, astrology, and the infinite nature of the universe. PS Beth dies.
