Welcome to Freaky Geese's production of 'Dead Outdoorsy' written by and starring Molly Barton.

"At Freaky Geese, we're immensely proud to be able to facilitate some of our nearest and dearest to create their own work and get it seen by lovely audiences. That was one of  our goals when we originated back in 2020; to give our friends a platform to showcase their brilliant talent and assist them in pushing their careers forward.

'Dead Outdoorsy' is certainly no exception to this. We're both grateful and proud of the hard work that Molly and Cara have put into this show. A big thank you to all the other talented individuals who have helped along the way too, making this the brilliant show you're about to see. 

So with that being said; sit back, laugh loudly and cheer passionately as we all get ready to #justplayeh

- Rhys Ashcroft and Dan Le Friec, Joint Artistic Directors of Freaky Geese Productions


A Note from Molly - 


"Polly first came to life about three years ago, back in Lancashire. I was wistfully gazing out of the window during lockdown (I'm sure we all were), thinking about shagging (I'm sure we all were) when she popped up out of nowhere, brandishing a placard. She was invented as a bit of light comic relief to distract from the truth of what the planet was going through, but her profundity became undeniable!


Getting to the heart of what she's about has been a beautiful journey for me. I really hope you all like her as much as I do. Big love to eco-slags everywhere, and a particularly huge shout out to my mum for being such an environmentally-friendly-sex-icon. Pamela Anderson once said 'activism is sexy' and my goodness! I reckon she was right!"
