Long Live The Little Knife is a fast-paced, absurd and uplifting theatre piece about forgery, castration and blind drunkenness.

Multi-award-winning ‘theatrical maverick’ (Sunday Times), ‘site-specific genius’ (Scotsman) and ‘Fringe institution’ (Independent) David Leddy presents this dynamic, uplifting escapade about art forgery, castration and blind drunkenness.

Liz and Jim are small-time con artists who need £250,000 fast. They decide to become the world’s greatest counterfeiters. There’s only one problem. They can’t paint.

This boisterous caper finds the absurd connections between verbatim theatre, free-market economics and a castrated labradoodle in a classic Chanel clutch bag.

Developed with support from Royal Shakespeare Company and British Museum.
