Fudgey

Types
Suitability

A brutally funny dark comedy about boarding school. Through the character of Fudgey - your quintessential, tone-deaf man in a suit (you know, the 'harmless' type... until you find them running the country) - award-winning, Gaulier-trained Greaves explores the complexities of his own privilege in a mind-bending, tour-de-force performance.

As Fudgey's reality hits breaking point, Greaves embodies a carousel of personalities in an anarchic & virtuosic performance, ultimately facing Fudgey's past to find his own future. Fantastically energetic, anchored in true emotion, strap in for a thrilling ride of laughter, tears & transformation. Directed by Lara Ciulli, with special thanks to Trygve Wakenshaw (Nautilus, Kraken, Squidboy).

Last year's work-in-progress Goodbye Uncle Fudgey won a Mervyn Stutter Spirit Of The Fringe Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and was highly praised by audiences:

"Absolutely fantastic. It achieves the very rare feat of being both hilarious and thought-provoking."

"This show captures the essence of the private education system and the toxic masculinity that results, with hilarious and heartbreaking honesty"

"There's a fine line between pain and laughter. This show navigates it with pitch perfect precision"

★★★★ ‘Funny, clever, and disturbing’ Theatre & Arts Review

★★★★ Pick Of The Fringe
