Fishamble: The New Play Company presents
Matinees 9 & 16 May 3.00pm €14
Little Thing, Big Thing is a darkly comic suspense thriller full of intrigue, betrayal and passion.
In Nigeria, a frightened child puts an old roll of film into the hands of Sister Martha, a Dublin-bound teacher, attracting the interest of some very powerful and ambitious people.
In Dublin, ex-con Larry, with a wounded backside, has to get out of the city to rob a convent and Scarab Oil plan to unleash a new clean fuel of the future.
The Irish ex-con and young nun form an unlikely yet passionate relationship as they attempt to take on the might of a powerful oil corporation.
Sorcha Fox and Donal O’Kelly play Martha and Larry, who take a high octane jump into the brutal world of international energy skullduggery and awaken passions they thought were long behind them.
