About the Play:

Definitely Eric Geddis is a one-act comedy by Michael Snelgrove. An ordinary person one day decides he wants to be rich and famous. He goes to an advertising agency to promote himself as the totally untalented, boring human being that he is. Needless to say, the public loves him and he does become an instant celebrity, but soon discovers that maybe fame and fortune is not what he really wants after all.

Definitely Eric Geddis is a witty satire is set in the world of advertising. Eric, an untalented, mundane factory worker bored with his life, decides to seek fame and fortune by walking into his firm's advertising agency and persuading the ambitious advertising executive, Rodney, to market him as a superstar. There follows a witty glimpse of the crazy, superficial, cut throat world of finance and promotion where Eric, his family and the advertising agency, fall victims to the fickle nature of the public eager to be duped by everything it sees and hears. Eric comes to the realization he was happier as an ordinary, anonymous man and secretly takes action to bring about the collapse of the Eric Geddis myth.

Definitely Eric Geddis was first performed by the Maidenhead Players.
