Egg is the story of one egg’s quest to find herself in a human world. At once powerful & powerless, comedic & majestic; Egg stands alone. Hatching with curious, fresh eyes, Egg overcomes many obstacles to become who she can be, struggling to fulfill her potential and claim a slice of this life for her own. But Alas! She is an egg and her fate is sealed. With no one and nothing to save her, her end is certain: she will be fried, yes, fried in a pan…
Surprising, fantastical & bold: a coming-of-age journey that tackles age-old questions like ‘What came first?’
‘Delightful and disorientating, a dizzying chain of events played out with obvious joy… It can laugh at itself without diminishing its intelligent points’ Plays To See
