Dishpig

“Hilarious, fast, flawless” Winnipeg Free Press

Dishpig is a one person show detailing the glory and triumph of scrubbing plates and cups and cutlery and pots in a high volume gourmet burger and margarita type restaurant.
And mopping the floor.
And taking out the garbage.
And doing grease runs.
And a whole lot of other duties.
But don't be fooled – there's a difficult side to the job, too.
What will our dishpig do with the mountains of cash he's making?
Will the social prestige of his employment go to his head?
How will he maintain graciousness as the world kisses his feet?
How will he choose amongst the legion of hot chicks on staff and on the floor vying for his affection?
These are the difficulties anyone who's ever worked in a hot, loud, busy kitchen knows well enough.

Dishpig was written over the winter of 2005/2006, and first read out to an audience at The Stand – a new script workshop series – organized by John Verhaeven, on February 10th, 2006, in the Carousel Theatre rehearsal space, Vancouver, BC. It had its second read for an invited audience on May 8th, 2006 in TJ's empty bunker-behind-a pet food store apartment which has since been torn down. Third reading: Cafe Montmartre, Vancouver. It opened at the Winnipeg Fringe, 2006. Fabulous response. Sold out all but its first two performances, and had an extra one added. Did really well in Saskatoon, too. Now it's back on the road. Revamped, after last year's limited run. A few scenes rewritten. And more changes in the lights.
