LAST CHANCE TO SEE
TOBY STEPHENS, CLAIRE SKINNER AND PATRICIA HODGE IN
FINAL THREE WEEKS – UNTIL 30 NOVEMBER
STORME TOOLIS, CLARENCE SMITH & LUCY EATON
Directed by SIMON EVANS
West End audiences have until 30 November to see the brilliant acting trilogy of Toby Stephens (Oslo, Lost In Space), Claire Skinner (Outnumbered, The Father) and Oliver Award winning Patricia Hodge (Miranda) in Simon Evans’ critically acclaimed production of Peter Nichols’ masterpiece A Day In The Death Of Joe Egg at Trafalgar Studios.
The strictly limited season of Nichols’ applauded bitter sweet comedy has audiences and critics raving alike. The five star “Celebrated tragi-comic masterpiece” (The Arts Desk) has been breaking audiences hearts while being hailed as “Pin-sharp. Heartbreaking and funny” (Evening Standard) and “Full of bravery” (Metro) and is not to be missed. A Day In The Death Of Joe Egg focusses on two parents, Toby Stephens (“Excellent” The Guardian) and Claire Skinner (“Striking” The Times), and the issues they face raising a disabled daughter in the 1960s. Patricia Hodge gives “A killer cameo” (Evening Standard) and Storme Toolis in the title role is “without question the living, beating heart at the centre” (The New European) and “the inscrutable emotional core” (Daily Mail) of this classic play. This remarkable story challenges all our assumptions on the limits of love and the power of family.
Inspired by Nichols’ own experience, Joe Egg was one of the ground-breaking plays of its generation and the issues faced by two parents in this bittersweet comedy still resonate with audiences today, breaking your heart one minute and filling it with warmth the next. Now this startlingly funny and celebrated play only has three weeks left on the West End and will close on Saturday 30 November.
