Presented by Theodora van der Beek


Egg is a surreal journey through the life of an egg. The yolk emerges from the shell, at first timid and wary, before becoming glorious, and ultimately angry at its fate: fried in a pan.

The egg is a symbol of many things, and we look at its cultural significances throughout history. A dynamic voyage with feminist undertones: the egg is at once powerful and powerless,  comedic and majestic. Through the eyes of an egg we uncover what we consider to be solely  human experiences: pain, loss, fear, hope, glory and redemption. While the human skin is flawed, the shell is perfect and knows more than it is telling.

Surprising! Fantastical! Bold! A coming of age journey that tackles age­ old questions like ‘What came first?’

Original costume by Tim Spooner for the RSPLB
