The writer and actor of the VAULT 2015’s sold out, critically acclaimed show, Love to Love to Love you brings you;

Though friends from university, GIRL 1 and GIRL 2 are living very different lives. Now in their late twenties, the only things that continue to unite them are their struggle against society’s expectations, a love of 90s dance music and a mounting alienation.

Over the course of a year, the tension of this realisation mounts and the wilfully humorous banality of their dialogues, so reassuring at first, begins to grate against a far more sincere and ultimately tragic subtext.

For this is a story about coming to terms with the absurd horror of one’s own fragmentation in a world. A world where the untimely death of a friend, IVF, pop-feminism, Scarlett Johansson, MDMA and Cher’s 90’s comeback album all chaotically co-exist.

In the end, it is their friendship, however flawed, which rescues these women from utter abstraction. This play celebrates these relationships, for all their bickering and sardonic glory.

A play about young women trying to figure out who they are. It’s about young people trying to figure out how to exist.

Eggs has been chosen  by Nick Hern Books to be published in an anthology of their five favourite plays at VAULT 2016. Learn more…
