Project Description

SPLEENDID! the musical

A man, a woman, a spleen… their PASSION! A macabre and zany one-act musical about a doctor’s obsession with the spleen (that most under-appreciated of organs), and the jealous nurse who will stop at nothing to win the doctor’s love.

One act musical comedy, (4M, 1F)

PRODUCTION HISTORY:
1997 – St. Mary’s High School Production
1997 – Calgary’s Dramafest competition
1998 – Nickel and Dime, University of Calgary
2001 – Nickel and Dime, University of Calgary

This was my first musical, with an initial version written when I was still in High School (we took it to Drama Fest!) and two subsequent productions at the University of Calgary through the Nickel and Dime Theatre. I’ve put it on the shelf for years, though someday… who knows, you may see it in a fringe festival.

REVIEW:

“Only Grant Tilly can pull off a musical in which the plot revolves around the human spleen.”
