Fried Eggs is a bizarre love story about two unusual sisters and one very understanding man. Eloise spends her life consoling men her sister Lulu has slept with and dumped. If Lulu could only be a little more inhibited, that might make Eloise’s life a bit easier. When Eloise loses her job because of Lulu, the last thing she wants is to meet her sister’s latest conquest, Brendan. But then again, Brendan might be the one person who can make everything right.
At a time when positive mental health is recognised as being crucial to our well-being and even survival, this funny, lyrical and quirky play shows that no matter what the odds, love and hope are still possible.
Fried Eggs is written and directed by Lindsay Jane Sedgwick, the award-winning screenwriter and former journalist whose nine hours of TV and film credits include the creation of the ground-breaking thrice IFTA-nominated TV series, PUNKY. This is her 13th stage production, with other plays staged in the Focus Theatre, Smock Alley Theatre, the Waterside (Derry), Cork Arts Theatre, the International Bar and broadcast on BBC Radio 4. She has just published her book Dad's Red Dress and plans to publish Fried Eggs as an ebook.
