Little Murders / Jules Feiffer


Jules Feiffer, best known as a satirical cartoonist, began his career in 1956 in The Village Voice. Twenty-seven years later his weekly cartoon still appears in The Village Voice, as well as being syndicated to many other newspapers here and abroad. Numerous collections of his cartoons have been published in addition to Tantrum, a novel-in-cartoons. Mr. Feiffer’s first work for the theater, The Explainers, was a musical review based on his cartoons which was staged in 1963 at Chicago’s Second City. Little Murders, his first full-length play, closed after one week on Broadway in 1967 but went on to become the first American play to be selected for the repertoire of England’s Royal Shakespeare Company and was voted the best foreign play of the year by the London critics; it finally came into its own in the United States two years later in Alan Arkin’s production at Circle in the Square. Among Mr. Feiffer’s other plays are God Bless, The White House Murder Case, and Knock Knock. He has also published a childhood memoir, The Great Comic Book Heroes', a book of trial drawings of the Chicago conspiracy trial, Pictures at a Prosecution-, and two novels, Harry, the Rat with Women and Ackroyd. Jules Feiffer has written the screenplays for the films Little Murders and Carnal Knowledge.

A startling mixture of absurdity, sharp-tongued satire, and genuine human tragedy

Beset by the usual New York City distractions —a power failure, obscene phone calls, and unexplained gunshots in the street—the Newquists are about to celebrate their daughter’s wedding. As the preacher conducts a hilarious offbeat ceremony, however, one final absurdity intrudes, changing their lives forever.
