A Day in the Death of Joe Egg Broadway

Roundabout Theatre Company presents A Day In the Death of Joe Egg by Peter Nichols, directed by Laurence Boswell.



A Day in the Death of Joe Egg concerns Bri (Eddie Izzard) and Sheila (Victoria Hamilton), and their handicapped child (nicknamed Joe Egg), aged 10. The parents invent 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.



Joe Egg debuted in Glasgow and London in 1967, and premiered on Broadway in 1968. The 1985 Roundabout production starring James Dale and Stockard Channing won two Tony Awards

Kristin Miller is a character of monumental will. The central figure of Alexi Kaye Campbell's Apologia, Kristin has spent years protesting war, championing women, combatting oppression, and, most consequentially, pioneering her own way into the male-dominated field of art history. While many of those who once stood by her side as fellow demonstrators in the 1960s abandoned their progressivist roots as they grew older, Kristin never lapsed in her work as an activist and a radical, committing herself for decades to upending the status quo. Uncompromising in her beliefs and unflinching in her willingness to fight for them, Kristin has won the admiration of her peers and the respect of her generation.
