Doris Day Can F__k Off
  • Show
  • "At the heart of this one-man show is a concern for the death of imprecision, a despair at the misuse of language and, I guess, a mild reclaiming of the true communicative power of song. He's clever, and it's fascinating, entrancing. At the end, he uses his physicality to express the damage, his audience awed.

    Could you live your life as if in a Doris Day musical, in constant song? Greg tried, and recorded everything. Finding rhythms in speech and longing for a sung response, this show is the result of that journey and the time spent in the interior world of the material.

    We journey from location to location, voice to voice, singing with Greg and trying to guess what will happen next. We long for someone to sing back to him, and eventually they do.

    Greg takes that as his cue and performs a number of 'post-fact duets' with the disembodied voices to create a slippery world between what is meant and what is expressed, what is created and what is found.

    It's a fantastically odd and moving journey that jolts between reality and imagination, and light social self-harm. It's a peculiarly playful and dangerous one man opera performed with utterly offhand conviction."
