Fried Eggs.... The Countdown begins!

Two weeks from today, we will be in Theatre Upstairs putting up our set and lighting design and creating the setting in which Karen Connell will create the magic using my script, Fried Eggs. It's a pretty scary and yet exhilarating moment to stop and smell the roses. Before dashing off to another rehearsal!

Fried Eggs began life because the Attic Studio Dublin were doing a night of audition pieces. I went a bit mad and came up with two short pieces. They were meant to be 2 minutes long - my second script (the one that became Fried Eggs) ended up being closer to 20! But everyone was talking about it and it seemed there were as many questions about the two sisters as there was life in the characters. So I wrote a bit more.

And a bit more again.

And there it was!

And here we are. A fantastic creative team has formed around the play...

Aoife Fealy, Set Design
Brian Murray, Lighting Design
Suzie Cummins, Stage Manager
Oliver Cronin, Visual Media Design
Julie Lockey, Production Assistant

The poster should be ready early next week and it looks stunning, featuring wonderful photos taken by Claire-Jeanne Nash just last month!


Fried Eggs runs from 11th - 22nd August; Tuesday to Saturday @ 7pm ; Weds and Sats @ 1 pm. Tickets are 10/ 8 euro.
