Eggsistentialism

Funny, Tender, Moving…

promo_iconLooking down the barrel of her final fertile years, one modern woman goes on a comical quest to uncover the ifs, hows and crucially the whys of reproducing her genes. Thinking outside the box in an effort to decide what to do with her own, eh, box, no stone is left unturned in this journey of extremes. Family, fertility experts, fortune tellers, philosophers, daytime radio and the dark recesses of the internet – all are consulted as she tries to figure out…

Written and Performed by JOANNE RYAN (Irish Times Theatre Award Best Actress Nominee 2014)

Directed by VERONICA COBURN
