Egg was commissioned and developed by Terrapin Puppet Theatre and Melbourne Theatre Company with the assistance of the Australia Council Interconnections Program.
Across a dry and dusty desert, two tinkers, Clyde and Horse, drag an enormous egg. They can’t remember
how long they’ve been dragging it, or why they’ve been dragging it, or where they are dragging it to. All they know is that it’s really important. Life on their big bald egg of a planet depends upon it. So there’s nothing to be done but to go on! Let’s tug this great big googy into the future. And who knows? Maybe something wonderful will hatch!
A tale of two forgetful fellows yoked to a yoke. Silly and funny and a little bit cracked, Egg is filled with clowning, puppetry, hope and the promise of renewal.
Mashing puckish pranking and wide-eyed wonder, the acclaimed creative team of writer Angela Betzien and MTC Asscociate Director Leticia Cáceres combine with renowned Tasmanian company Terrapin Puppet Theatre for this quirky little fable for ages eight to ancient, starring comedy favourite Genevieve Morris (True Minds), featuring the talents of puppet-master Sam Routledge.
