THE MARSH PRESENTS GEOFF HOYLE’S
WHAT WILL I BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?

Written and Performed by Geoff Hoyle
Developed and Directed by David Ford
7:00pm, Saturday, March 20, 2021

Geoff Hoyle didn’t get hit by a bus in his 30s, didn’t have a heart attack in his 50s, didn’t get frontotemporal dementia or COVID-19 (so far) in his 70s, and now he’s old enough to be “The Grandfather.” Hoyle ponders his “legacy” and vast “worldly wisdom,” and how you pass on the best bits in his filmic version of What Will I Be When You Grow Up?, available to watch on The Marsh’s digital platform, MarshStream, for one-night-only. Following the filmed presentation, Hoyle will be joined by The Marsh Founder/Artistic Director Stephanie Weisman for an exclusive live Q&A. Part of the Solo Performer Spotlight series, Hoyle’s latest piece of foolery will be presented 7:00pm, Saturday, March 20.  For more information, please visit www.themarsh.org/marshstream.

After training with Étienne Decroux in Paris and performing in the streets of London, Geoff Hoyle (Playwright/Performer) came to San Francisco from his native England. He joined the Pickle Family Circus as Mr. Sniff the clown. Later, Hoyle created his critically acclaimed solo show, Feast of Fools, featuring clown, cabaret, music-hall, and masked Commedia dell’arte characters. His award-winning shows The Convict’s ReturnGeni(us), and The First Hundred Years have been seen in San Francisco, Paris, London, Berlin, Taiwan, New York, England, Russia, and Latvia. Hoyle’s regional theatre credits include Seattle Rep, ACT, La Jolla Playhouse, and Berkeley Rep. He created the original Zazu in the Broadway cast of The Lion King and appeared Off-Broadway in Tony Kushner’s and Maurice Sendak’s adaptation of the children’s opera Brundibar. Hoyle has also appeared regularly with Teatro ZinZanni. Geezer, a companion piece to his 1992 solo Boomer!, played at The Marsh in 2011 and his last solo, Lear’s Shadow, debuted at The Marsh in 2013.
