Outpost Gallifrey has received the following press release concerning the one-man show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf, which after its success at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival is going out on the road in 2007. The release runs:
MOTHS ON THE RAMPAGE Being the surprise critical and commercial success of last year's Edinburgh Fringe wasn't enough for Toby Hadoke and his one man show Moths Ate My Dr Who Scarf. He's now embarking on a nationwide tour (preliminary dates below, more to follow). The show has recently been bought by BBC 7 and is being turned into a two part comedy drama for broadcast later in the year (although this will be very different from the one-man show). The tour kicked off at The Windsor Arts Centre in January and came perilously close to selling out.
Award winning comedian Toby Hadoke takes you on a personal odyssey through one man’s obsession with a TV show. Sharp, satirical, poignant and ultimately uplifting, this show appeals across the board, even to people without intimate knowledge of Time Lords and Tetraps. Not suitable for football hooligans, Daily Mail readers, Hollyoaks actors or The BNP.
“Recommended – a confident performer in a well structured and surprisingly effective one-man show with an emotional kick” – The Times
“Eloquent, forthright, passionate – one of the most entertaining hours this side of Gallifrey” – Chortle
“A must see – well conceived and worryingly accurate” – Edinburgh Evening News.
The tour will be intermittent – these are confirmed dates, with a further thirty or so awaiting confirmation throughout the year. Visit TobyHadoke.com for updates.
14th February – Leicester Comedy Festival (please note, the addition of an apostrophe to the word Moths was made by the team behind the festival brochure and a move Toby would like to wash his hands of) 16th & 17th March – Theatre Royal, Bath (16th is an extra date due to demand) 23rd March – Glasgow Comedy Festival 11th May – Hemel Hempstead 25th May – St Albans 8th June – The Lowry, Salford 14th June – Ammanford Mines Theatre 23rd Sept – Sheffield Comedy Festival, The Lescar
