Synopsis


Bri and Sheila have been struggling to care for their disabled 10-year old daughter Josephine ever since she was born.


Nicknaming her "Joe Egg", they lose themselves in fantasy games and black humour to help cope with the struggle of their daily reality.


Directed by Simon Evans (Killer Joe, Arturo Ui), this remarkable story challenges all our assumptions on the limits of love and the power of family.


Written and set in the 1960s, Joe Egg was one of the ground-breaking plays for a generation, and the issues faced by two parents in this hilarious and heart-breaking play still resonate with audiences today.
