Scratch Performances at CYGNET THEATRE @ 19.30 on 2nd & 3rd September


Do you know what’s wrong with this country? Cowardice. No one’s brave enough to stand up and say what’s obvious. Some women should not be allowed to have children”.


Chloe’s speed dating for a sperm donor. Angus is sterilising unsuitable women. A psychiatrist signs the papers. A mother is sedated. A baby is taken away. Maisie clings to the fantasy of her nuclear family. 


24 playlets. 31 characters. 6 actors. A series of seemingly unrelated scenes accumulate in Rachel Besser’s new play, Eggs. This is a dark, fast-paced mosaic of modern parenthood, family life and the disturbing effect it can have on the child.
