Somewhere in the static between radio stations, Eggs Collective present Late Night Love, a tender and ridiculous show that clambers up your drainpipe with a rose between its teeth.
Inspired by the confessional radio show of the same name, Late Night Love is an unflinching attempt to unpick the truth from the fiction of chocolate boxes and untangle expectations of adulthood from the promise of power ballads.
Raw-edged and warm-hearted, tune in to Late Night Love, where teenage crushes wrangle with the reality of romance, saxophones cry and secrets crackle from radios in the dark.
Late Night Love is the company’s second show, following 2015’s messy and much loved hit Eggs Collective Get A Round.
Eggs Collective are a trio who make sharp, comic, politically motivated work that falls somewhere in the cracks between theatre and cabaret.
