Little Murders

Performance Dates
It’s murder out there! Start the new year off with a laugh, the mordant comedy by political and social satirist/cartoonist Jules Feiffer. Written at the peak of Sixties insanity Little Murders focuses on the violence that encircles and engulfs a New York City family. It’s a world where the sound of gunshots is de rigueur, heavy breathers regularly call, unseen visitors knock at the door….. and the Newquists are just trying to have a nice day. DCTheatreScene: "...if you can withstand annoying but riotously funny characters, constantly flickering lights and blackouts, and loud gunshots when you least expect it, Little Murders is just the play for you...Slick, brave, and fearlessly acted, it’s well worth your time and attention."
