Also on at The Vaults: Eggs by Florence Keith-Roach 24 February to 6 March

Eggs at the Vault Festival

Eggs is a dark comedy about female friendship, fertility and freaking out.

This intimate two-hander by Florence Keith-Roach, which premiered to great acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015, looks at gender disparity and the struggle of growing up as part of Generation Y.

It is about young women trying to figure out who they are in a world where the untimely death of a friend, IVF, pop-feminism, Scarlett Johansson, MDMA and Cher’s 90s comeback album all chaotically co-exist.

Awarded Rising star of the London Theatre scene (The Evening Standard), Keith-Roach is an actor, writer and director. Eggs is her second play. She has written articles for Grazia, Little White Lies and The Observer and a short film, Frenching The Bully. Keith-Roach is the founder of Orphee Productions, a female- led collective dedicated to telling stories that challenge gender preconceptions.

She said: “I wrote Eggs to try to examine the volatility and unique calibre of female friendship.
“I wanted to shed light on the complexities of these relationships, both nurturing and destructive, inspiring and draining, funny yet tragic.

“I believe that for women – fighting for recognition in the workplace, equal pay and respect from men in power – it is their female friendships, above all other relationships, which tend to endure.”

Eggs has been published by Nick Hern Books in an anthology of the best five plays at Vault Festival.

Eggs plays at Vault Festival from 24 February 6 March at 6.30pm with 2.45pm matinees on 27 February and 5 March.
