Greg Freeman is an English playwright and television writer.

He is known for his critically acclaimed absurd and satirical plays, prompting Time Out London to dub him "batshit mental king of the dark fringe".[1]

Freeman's notable works include Doig the Musical: With No Singing, No Dancing and Very Little Music,[2] Beak Street,[3] No Picnic[4] and Dogstar.[5]

In 2013, he and Lila Whelan were commissioned by Tacit Theatre to adapt Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet for the stage. It premiered at Southwark Playhouse[6] in 2014.

Freeman also successfully adapted the US sitcom Who's the Boss? for British television; it was renamed The Upper Hand and ran for seven seasons.

He is the son of Dave Freeman.
