A DAY IN THE DEATH OF JOE EGG
Presented by Lindisfarne
When Lindisfarne went to cast their latest production A DAY IN THE DEATH OF JOE EGG they definitely struck lucky with an ex-west end actress, who is only 12 years old! Tamsin Edwards plays the role of Josephine and has to remain in a wheelchair for most of the 100 minute running time.
Tasmin comes fresh from her appearance in the West End production of Billy Elliott at London’s Victoria Palace Theatre and is pleased to be playing this difficult and complex role.
Josephine is the daughter of Brian and Sheila and has severe celebral palsy. This play takes a comic look at the trials and tribulations this young couple endure caring for a totally dependant child. Brian’s extended family also weigh in the shape of friend Freddy and his wife Pam and Brian’s mother Grace.
The play stars Rob Stow as Brian and Toni Taylor as Sheila, with Kim Tobin as Pam and Trevor Corner as Freddie with Belinda Belt as Grace.
Peter Nichols, wrote this semi-autobiographical work and based it on his own daughter Abigail who died at 14 years of age.
Come and see a challenging and darkly funny piece of 60’s theatre at the Dixon Studio, Palace Theatre from Weds June 30th – Saturday 3rd July.
