Florence Keith-Roach

Eggs (NHB Modern Plays)

A dark comedy about female friendship, fertility and freaking out, by Florence Keith-Roach, ‘rising star of the London theatre scene’ (Evening Standard).
Two women, living very different lives, are united by their quick wit, love of nineties’ dance music and a mounting alienation.
Eggs was first performed as part of the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and was selected for the 2016 VAULT Festival, London. It is also available in the volume Plays from VAULT.
'a neat exploration of female friendship… authentically honest and amusing… an unexpected treat' — Evening Standard
‘Honest. Human. Real. Frank. Funny. Achingly relevant’ — Broadway Baby

    am serious, like, I don’t understand humankind, women, friends, men, lovers. I literally have no idea. And I never have. Just like Scarlett Johansson, I can look, seem, right but in fact know nothing and understand no one

    And it just made so much sense to me, cos that’s it. That’s what I have been trying to explain to you. I feel like such an alien. A hatched thing. This creature who has the shell of a woman but inside is just this weird little alien, just taking it all in, totally confused by everything. Unable to really understand what the fuck anyone means.

    Yeah, she looks all normal and chubby with, like, a flabby belly, a brown wig and kitten-heel boots.
