The Frogs

Spymonkey’s tragically funny attempt to pull off a classic Greek comedy

Written by Carl Grose and Spymonkey, with massive apologies to Aristophanes

Spymonkey’s Toby Park and Aitor Basauri are at the end of the road. The other Spymonkeys have taken themselves off to a better place, and they’re about to call it a day.

To their rescue rides mega-rich philanthropist Patty Getty and her theatrically ambitious niece Jacoba with an offer they can’t refuse! But does this beleaguered comedy duo have what it takes to perform the classic Greek comedy The Frogs at Patty’s legendary amphitheatre in Hollywood?

Shot through with Spymonkey’s uniquely surreal comedy, The Frogs is a delirious trip through Greek theatre, a monster-filled Underworld and classic vaudeville double acts but with existential angst, bronzed oiled torsos and a jumping chorus of tap-dancing frogs!

What are you waiting for? Hop to it!

A Royal & Derngate and Spymonkey co-production

We attended the Press Night which was packed out with a very attentive audience. The audience was filled with laughter throughout this magnificent production. Spy Monkey have expertly crafted this adaptation of a very old story bringing it well up to speed with modern times.

The cast were exceptional throughout the entire performance. With very fitting music and the great slap stick comedy, this really does tick all of the boxes.

We highly recommend a visit to watch this brilliant production.
