Greg Freeman's Montagu is an allegorical and timely tale that takes a satirical look at leadership and power.

Following on from their sell out success at the Tabard Theatre last Summer, with Sherlock Holmes and the Invisible Thing, Freeman and McClymont return with their latest production Montagu, an off-beat play about a leadership struggle in a herd of donkeys.

Montagu is not happy. Leaders of his herd keep getting assassinated and he’s just been made the next leader. Worse still he is now faced by the two most important issues that dominates the thinking of every new leader. “How can I stay in power” and “what will be my legacy?” Let’s hope Montagu even survives the night.

Greg Freeman edited and adapted the only ever successful version of an American Sitcom 'Who's The Boss' which became 'The Upper Hand' (ITV). He has since developed a career in the theatre. Writing credits at the Tabard Theatre include the Time Out Critics Choice shows of No Picnic... Doig... and Beak Street, and also DogStar and Sherlock Holmes and The Invisible Thing.

Starring in the title role is Christien Anholt (Hamlet, Relic Hunter) who was last seen at the Tabard Theatre in Dog Ends. Jerome Ngonadi, Evelyn Craven and Georgia Robson complete the cast and Mike Leopold is the set designer.

Montagu runs from 23 May – 17 June 2017 on Tuesday to Saturdays at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced £16/£12 and you can book online at or 020 8995 6035.
