About Book

'This remarkable play is about a nightmare all women must have dreamed at some time, and most men...'
Ronald Bryden, Observer (1967)

'Joe Egg is unlike any play I've seen; concerns about whether it's dated fade next to the claims that can now be made for it. It's in the collisions between pious and rogue thoughts that the play's energy lies. We don't know what to feel. Which is why, once seen, Joe Egg won't go away.'
Robert Butler, Independent on Sunday (1993)
