Living Spit are back!
The Late-ivity from Living Spit
Saturday 8th January 2022 – 7.30pm
Living Spit (Six Wives of Henry VIII) present another comedy masterpiece with silly songs, pitiful puppetry and Biblical befuddlement – not for the faint-hearted (or the extremely religious)!
In a desperate and gratuitous attempt to wring yet more cash out of their smash-hit Christmas show, ‘The Nativity’ for the absolute minimum effort, Living Spit have cleverly renamed it ‘The Late-ivity’!
With a couple of perfunctory tweaks to the script and literally a few minutes of re-rehearsal, they’ve managed to make it appear that they’ve put loads of thought into it, whilst actually doing barely any work. The mistletoe may be manky and the tinsel may be tired, but the ever reliable Living Spit will be delivering the same cornucopia of comic Christmassy crudeness that they did in December. Only this time it’s got a slightly different title. And they’re doing it In January.
As King Herod would say, ‘What a pair of lazy f***ers.’
The divine duo deliver an unholy romp with more laughs than any other in the festive period. Stagetalk ★★★★★

Reviews of their last show
“‘The Six Wives of Henry VIII’ is a storming, surprising and sassy night out. The music is as cool as the wives are hot and, amidst the sharp dialogue, witty characters, deft theatricality and bloody fascinating history, I was genuinely moved. Cracking storytelling and a top night out.” Emma Rice (Wise Children and The Globe)
“Hysterically funny…left me with aching cheeks from laughing so much”
Think of Six, turn it upside down, add a couple of hysterical jokes, and you’ll have The Six Wives of Henry VIII. The result is glorious.
**** Broadway World
“A brilliant, successful show that will ensure you have one of the funniest evenings of the beginning of this decade.”
