A funny, tender and moving exploration of reproduction in 21st Century Ireland

Joanne Ryan's internationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning show is a funny, tender and moving exploration of reproduction in 21st Century Ireland. Looking down the barrel of her final fertile years, one modern Irish woman goes on a comical quest to uncover the ifs, hows and crucially the whys of reproducing her genes.

Mixing animation with stand-up, monologue and hilarious recorded interjections from Ryan's mother, Eggsistentialism takes a light-hearted but unflinching look at one of life's most compelling dilemmas: should making a life for oneself involve making another?

Winner of The Lustrum Award, The Melbourne Fringe Tour Ready Award, Sydney Fringe's Critics’ Pick Award, Best Storytelling Bouquet at Edinburgh Festival and nominated for Best Performance at Melbourne Fringe.
