WHO WE ARE...
Greedy Pig Theatre Company is based in Bath and was founded in 2018 by Bath Spa University alumni, Lex and Doug. The pair met through their shared passion for musical theatre, and it has since become apparent that they also share a creative drive for many other kinds of theatre. Holly joined the sty in 2021 after working with Greedy Pig as a freelance producer.
