Joanne Ryan… and some eggs…


Funny. Tender. Moving. Looking down the barrel of her final fertile years, one modern woman goes on a comical quest to uncover the ifs, hows and especially the whys of reproducing her genes while peering though the lens of Ireland’s reproductive health history. No stone is left unturned on this journey of extremes as she tries to figure out – Should making a life for oneself involve making another?

“Hilarious…Captivating” – The Irish Times

“Close to a masterpiece; intelligent, thoughtful, wry, funny and above all loving.” – The Sunday Independent

“Important…relatable…elevates a thoughtful personal piece into something more universally political.” – The Scotsman

Written and performed by Joanne Ryan
Directed by Veronica Coburn
