A Day in the Death of Joe Egg description

Peter Nichols’ funny and moving masterpiece, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, is the extraordinary play inspired by the author’s own experience of raising his daughter. A story about family, it shines a light on her parents’ caring for their disabled daughter, affectionately nicknamed “Joe Egg”, and how they live using wild wry humour to keep the family together.

This new production brings together some of Britain’s greatest actors including Toby Stephens (Oslo, Lost in Space), Claire Skinner (Outnumbered) as husband and wife, Bri and Sheila, who star alongside Olivier Award winner Patricia Hodge (Miranda, National Theatre’s Money) as Bri’s mother, all making their long-awaited returns to the West End in this new production from leading director Simon Evans (Killer Joe, Arturo Ui).

Hilarious and heartbreaking, this vitally important story will pierce your heart one moment, and fill it with warmth the next. With its courageous humour and astonishing honesty, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg is the must see play of the autumn.

‘Heartbreaking. Funny. Full of bravery.’ Metro

‘Pin-sharp. Heartbreaking and funny’ Evening Standard

‘A celebrated tragi-comic masterpiece. MAGNIFICENT!’ The Arts Desk

Review: A DAY IN THE DEATH OF JOE EGG at Trafalgar Studios

by Stuart King | Tuesday, October 1 2019, 10:51

A Day in the Death of Joe Egg Peter Nichols’ 1967 play A DAY IN THE DEATH OF JOE EGG is typical of the writer’s mocking irreverence towards taboo subjects. His death aged 92 just a few weeks ago, makes this revival of his groundbreaking play, now running at Trafalgar Studios, all the more poignant.
