Michaelmas Week 8
Joe is ten years old, severely disabled, wheelchair bound and completely dependent on her parents. She will have no life. So why is she allowed to live? Bri and Sheila have to live with the moral dilemma that nobody should have to face. Bri clowns his way through life. Sheila clings to the hope that one day, somehow, all will be right again. Throw in the questionable support of their friends and family, and the group soon begins to realise they are all experiencing a day in the death of Joe Egg. Peter Nichols' darkly comic masterpiece balances somewhere on the verge between tragedy and hilarity. 'A Day in the Death of Joe Egg' demands answers to questions that cannot be ignored, and will leave you wondering whether to laugh or cry. Presented in one of Cambridge's most unique and exciting venues.
