Little Malcolm and His Struggle Against the Eunuchs (1975)
Directed by Malcolm Saunders
Malcolm Scrawdyke, expelled from his Huddersfield art college, persuades fellow students Ingham, Wick and Nipple to join him in forming the Party of Dynamic Erection. Confident that the youth of the nation will rush to join them, their only worry, as expressed by Ingham, is whether they will have enough chairs.
The play is, in many ways, a period piece with its timely warning of how revolutionary ideals often stem from baser, selfish motives and can soon shade into fascism. It can be no accident that its student revolutionaries display, apparently unconscious, admiration for Hitler's organizational abilities.
