DOIG!
The Musical!
With no singing, no dancing and very little music

by Greg Freeman

Timeout No 1 Critics Choice
'Theatre that from concept to execution is utterly bonkers but quite brilliant'

The Tabard Theatre is proud to present
Doig The Musical (with no singing no dancing and very little music), a fantastical, farcical piece of new writing by acclaimed writer Greg Freeman.

'Wickedly clever new satire' Timeout

Doig has become a victim of the corporate, capitalist, consumerist 21st century and wants a way out. He realises he can beat this by fashionably casting off all his possessions to the point he has simply a bag in which to hide his public disgrace. With help from his sister, boss and life-coach, Doig has become merely a product himself, available for mass consumption and an icon to millions. Has he become the very thing he detests?

'The Tabard has started its autumn season with a very fine play indeed.'
Chiswick Times

Doig The Musical (with no singing, no dancing and very little music) is the perfect antidote to the madness that has encapsulated the economic world summed up and packaged in a post modern, anti-consumerist, neo-absurdist, non-musical. And, in true 'Doig' spirit, each Monday performance, one lucky audience member will win the entire night's Box Office takings. Anything is possible in Doig - The Musical.

Greg Freeman edited and adapted the only ever successful version of an American Sitcom 'WHO'S THE BOSS' which became 'THE UPPER HAND' (ITV). Since the turn of the century, he has developed a career in the theatre including LAST BUS TO PARADISE, UNDERBELLY, (co-wrote and winner of the London New Play Festival) TAKE, (Old Red Lion) KATHMANDU, (Menier Chocolate Factory and Pleasance Edinburgh) and WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE (New End Theatre).

Doig is directed by Ken McClymont, the former Artistic Director of The Old Red Lion Theatre. Whilst there he directed over thirty premieres incl: Waiting for the Angels, Murder In Bridgport, Diaspora Jigs and Life After Life. Revivals include: A Chaste Maid In Cheapside (Old Red Lion) and The Slab Boys (Old Red Lion) which won Best Production of a Comedy Award (LFA). In 1989-90 he won an Outstanding Contribution to Fringe Theatre Award for programming of an exceptional standard at the Old Red Lion.
