Truelove Tours presents… “As I Remember Thrigby”

Part I of Manly Truelove’s “Theatrical Anecdotes Trilogy”:

Written and performed by Darren Gooding.

Actor, Critic and devious old booze-hound Mr. Manly S. Truelove cordially invites you to join him on a guided tour of his surreal and often utterly unbelievable theatrical world. Over a few tiny drinkies, (well, quite a few to be honest), Manly attempts to unravel many baffling theatrical tales, including the stratospheric rise and subsequent Icarus-like fall of the once great, now forgotten (and largely inebriated) 1960’s matinee idol, Sir Thrigby Tree-Frog.
