Longing Lasts Longer by Penny Arcade

"thinking is sexy people!.. let's bring back thinking!!"

Longing Lasts Longer by Penny Arcade.

Longing last Longer is a kick-ass comedy with guts, it's a refutation of nostalgia, It's a crack at gentrification; not only  the gentrification  of our cities but the gentrification of ideas. It's a stand up for authenticity, a kick against mediocrity.  No one is spared not even the seemingly banal cupcake! 
One thing for sure Penny Arcade tells you where to go and that's your own way!!!

Penny Arcade, an Andy Warhol Factory Superstar and a contemporary of Patti Smith and Debbie Harry,  together with her long time collaborator Steve Zehentner brought Longing Lasts Longer to the Peacock stage in the Abbey Theatre for Dublin Fringe  2016. 

In Penny's own words Longing Lasts Longer is:-

 "a vindication for people over 50 and a context provider for people under 50"

"thinking is sexy people!.. let's bring back thinking!!"
