'LITTLE MALCOLM' Begins in July at Southwark Playhouse


This 50th anniversary production of Little Malcolm and his Struggle Against the Eunuchs, a revival of David Halliwell's startlingly pertinent comedy, is the first in London in 16 years.

In a year when a general election was 'fought' amongst the privileged few, Halliwell's comedy bursts with energy and bite and feels more relevant than ever before.

Clive Judd directs following his success with the critically acclaimed Captain Amazing at Soho Theatre.

Little Malcolm and his Struggle Against the Eunuchs will open for a 4-week season in The Little at Southwark Playhouse from Wednesday 8 July to Saturday 1 August.

Press night is Friday 10 July at 8.00pm.

"You've all betrayed yourselves! You'll be nothing but self-hating eunuchs. Disobey! Disobey like freemen!"

The North. A young man rejected by an institution, let down by the system, starts a revolution. In his flat. In Huddersfield, the centre of everything.

Malcolm Scrawdyke is a man screaming at the walls. Uniting his friends he aims to take vengeance on a world that has spat him out. The aim? Absolute power for powers sake.

The Party of Dynamic Erection is forming, which side are you on? You self-hating Eunuch!
