Funny, moving and tender, Eggsistentialism is a multimedia, autobiographical, one-woman theatre show that charts the madcap journey I went on to try and figure out whether or not I should have kids while staring down the barrel of my final fertile years. It’s also about the social, cultural and political context that we make big decisions like that in. It's a timely piece of work that has really resonated with audiences here in Ireland and this August, with your support - and the help of my amazing partners in this campaign, Pharmacia Bar and Absolute Hotel - I'll be bringing the show to an international audience at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The show was a huge hit with critics and audiences alike when it first ran last September and following that success the wonderful creative team (Veronica Coburn, Sinéad Diskin, Neil O'Driscoll, Padraic Hackett, Amy Burke and myself) reassembled earlier this year to do some more development work on the piece and fine tune the show we'll be bringing to Edinburgh!

I'm delighted to have the support of Culture Ireland who are helping out with transport and accommodation costs, but there are still some major production costs that will need to be met to get the show to Edinburgh and make it a success.

All the money raised from this Fund it campaign will be used to cover production costs including equipment hire, crew and artist fees, set build, PR and marketing costs, insurance, venue rental and festival registration fees.

Edinburgh is the biggest arts festival in the world and I'll be competing with literally thousands of other shows there for audiences and reviews. Your support will help give me the best chance of getting the show to Edinburgh, getting it seen and of making it the best it can be for those who see it.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read about the project and a huge, ginormous thank you for any support you can give to help me reach my funding target and get Eggsistentialism to Edinburgh! I'm so grateful and you're all looking well!
