EGG (Erin Fowler Movement)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2022

What an egg-quisite show! This clever performance flips between more fantastical elements and some harsh realities, highlighting the difficulties women face when deciding to have children at a certain age, the expectations put on them and much more. Erin Fowler is electric in owning every inch of the stage while showcasing her dancing, musical and acting skills. The standout moments come when classic pop music is cleverly mixed with Fowler’s physical comedy – they are hilarious but also successful at getting her points across. Her command of scripted comedy is also really good, giving us many ‘Fleabag’-esque moments, even though it occasionally fails to hit the mark. Towards the end, the craziness gives way to some incredibly moving choreography. An egg-cellent, packed show.

House Of Oz, until 28 Aug.
