Help get Eggsistentialism to Edinburgh!

By Joanne Ryan

description

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!

Halfway there!

Hello lovely funders! Thanks to you we have now passed the half way make in the Fundit! Huge thanks for your support in getting us here, you're amazing. There's only one week left in the campaign and it's a nailbiting all or nothing affair so please, please, please share the love and spread the word and help us give us a push to make it to the target. Thanks so much again! You're actually the best. Joanne xx

Thank you!

Hi all, Just a quick thanks to all the legends who have taken the time to fund so far, you're amazing and myself and everyone on team eggs are so very grateful. We still have a huge way to got to meet our target and the campaign timeline is deliberately short to give the winners of the flights a chance to arrange if they want to use them to go to the Fringe so we're really against the clock!! If you could please share the campaign with anyone you think might be interested in supporting that would be an really amazing help. Thanks so much again! Me nerves! x
