Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Penny Arcade is a force of nature!

Edinburgh’s double award winning show from New York’s undisputed queen of the underground turns contemporary stand-up on its head to create a crack in the post-gentrified landscape where you will never be the same!

Driven by her magnetic rock n’ roll energy, Arcade’s razor sharp satire is mixed live to euphoric soundscapes inspired by four decades of pop culture.

A blow against the golden age of stupidity, this is a passionate and exuberant performance anthem where you can think, laugh and dance and at the same time!

Outrageous and inspirational, Penny Arcade is one of a handful of artists who created performance art as we know it today. In 1967 she debuted with John Vaccaro’s explosive Playhouse of the Ridiculous and in 1969 became an Andy Warhol Factory Superstar. A contemporary of Patti Smith and Debbie Harry, Quentin Crisp named Penny Arcade as his soul mate and the woman he most identified with.

Arcade last toured Australia with her internationally acclaimed sex and censorship show ‘Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore!’

WINNER: HERALD ANGEL AWARD 2015
WINNER: SCOTSMAN FRINGE FIRST AWARD 2015

Longing Lasts Longer is produced in Australia by Theatre Works and London Artists Projects in association with Soho Theatre.
