Tom Greaves will make his comedy debut with one man show FUDGEY at Assembly Festival 2024 at EdFringe. Playing at Assembly Roxy, Downstairs, 17:55 | 31 Jul – 26 Aug.

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 comedy 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) with special thanks to Trygve Wakenshaw (Nautilus, Kraken, Squidboy).   Tom Greaves (writer/performer) trained at LAMDA and École Philippe Gaulier. His acting work includes the award-winning film Shuttlecock (BFI London Film Festival Best Short & Nominated Best Actor), &  the viral film hit Offline Dating.  Theatre work includes The Seagull (Regent's Park Open Air dir: Matthew Dunster), Arcadia (National Tour dir: Blanche Macintyre) & Kiki's Delivery Service (Southwark Playhouse dir: Kate Hewitt); TV/Film: Temple (SKY), Strike (BBC), Damilola, Our Loved Boy (BAFTA Best TV Drama) & Peter Rabbit (Columbia Pictures).  Last year's work in progress Goodbye Uncle Fudgey won a Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award and was highly praised by audiences
