Tom Greaves: FUDGEY



#FindYour Funny, Weird, Story, Thrill, Talent

Embark on a madcap journey of introspection and self-discovery in this 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 Tom Greaves explores the complexities of his own privilege in his mind-bending, tour-de-force debut.

As Fudgey’s reality hits breaking point, Greaves embodies a carousel of personalities and puppets in an anarchic & virtuosic performance, ultimately facing Fudgey’s past to find his own (Tom’s) future.

Fantastically energetic, anchored in true emotion, strap in for a thrilling ride of laughter, tears & transformation. Directed by Lara Ciulli (Those People, The Sister’s Fig) and 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 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”
