  • Peter Nichols’ funny and moving masterpiece, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg at the Trafalgar Studios 1, is the extraordinary play inspired by the author’s own experience of raising his daughter. 
    A story about family, it shines a light on her parents’ caring for their disabled daughter, affectionately nicknamed “Joe Egg”, and how they live using wild wry humour to keep the family together.
    This new production brings together some of Britain’s greatest actors including Toby Stephens (Oslo, Lost in Space), Claire Skinner (Outnumbered) as husband and wife, Bri and Sheila, who star alongside Olivier Award winner Patricia Hodge (Miranda, National Theatre’s Money) as Bri’s mother, all making their long-awaited returns to the West End in this new production from leading director Simon Evans (Killer Joe, Arturo Ui).
    Hilarious and heartbreaking, this vitally important story will pierce your heart one moment, and fill it with warmth the next. With its courageous humour and astonishing honesty, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg is the must see play of the autumn.
    At Trafalgar Studios 1 from 20 September to 30 November 2019, book your A Day in the Death of Joe Egg tickets today!
