PORTFOLIO

 

GREEDY PIG THEATRE COMPANY LTD

greedypiglogo1-NO-BG-blacksquare.jpg

Lex works as the Director, Facilitator and Co-Producer for Greedy Pig Theatre Company. Greedy Pig Theatre Company is based in Bath and was founded in 2018 by Bath Spa University alumni, Lex and Doug. 

 

Greedy Pig Theatre Company is run by Bath Spa University alumni Douglas Murdoch, Lex Kaby and Holly Jefferies. At Greedy Pig, we love to play with perceptions of normality in our work, and are passionate about exploring themes surrounding gender, and telling LGBTQIA+ and feminist stories. We like to find the story we want to tell, and then find the best lens through which to tell that story. Sometimes that'll be a play. Sometimes it'll be a film. Sometimes both, sometimes neither, and sometimes it'll be something entirely different. After all, when it comes down to it, we are Greedy.
