A play by Peter Nichols
Bri and Sheila are the young parents of a disabled ten year-old child (nicknamed Joe Egg) who is incapable of sound or movement. They try to cope by inventing conversations and personality traits for the child, even though she seems unable to communicate in any way. As Bri and Sheila begin to fabricate scenarios, their marriage comes under increasing strain.
A Day In The Death Of Joe Egg was a West End success where it received extraordinary critical
acclaim and was also released as a film in 1971 and 2002.
