New theatre company Painting Painting bring two brutally funny pieces of new writing to Theatre N16 this February: Blackhander and F**king Little Elf B*tch.
In Blackhander, an ageing, racist invalid invites a spiritual leader to absolve her of her sins for an obscene amount of money. Only this is not what's happening.
“Were you planning on saving me from the searing fires of eternal damnation before lunch, only I've got the Jews coming at 3. And I hear they're pretty persuasive.”
Sermons flow, truth deteriorates and she may be justice incarnate, and she may be properly insane, and retaliation is an inaccurate business… and we may not be the good guys. Blackhander is written and directed by Colum David Demirer.
Inspired by 8 years working in a grotto, F**king Little Elf B*tch follows the adventures of Ivy through the dark realities of the Wonderland. As the truth of her situation dawns on her, Ivy makes it her mission to take the make believe out of Christmas.
“You’re not a real elf. You are just a grown up dressed in a stupid costume. There is nothing magic about you.”
If the idea of a festive themed show in February is your idea of humbug hell then perfect, you are already tapped into the mind-set of this disgruntled oversized Elf. F**king Little Elf B*tch is written by Katherine Newman and directed by Dudley Rees.
