Produced and presented by The Brew Makers Theatre CoHosted by The Cockpit


The Egg Rumour
By Ellamae CieslikA musical play that explores the new office perk large corporations are offering to women: Social Freezing! Ladies, you can now freeze your eggs, work your way up the ladder, find the right man and forget about having kids for a few years.
It really is that simple! Or is it?The Egg Rumour follows a small company who gives Iva, a young woman, an incredible promotion to the top. Unsure of what is right for her, and with constant pressures of day to day life, she takes it.
We are soon taken into Iva’s imagination, meeting her Fella, Bossman and fellow Office Gal workers and don’t forget a spectacle from the Party Leader of the F.F.F (fun, fertility and freezing), selling the idea of just how great ‘social freeze’ can be.
With technology moving at a faster pace than our biological clocks are even prepared for, can Iva fit all of her eggs in one basket? Only the Egg Whisperer can tell.Director: Michael Powell
