Eggs Collective Get A Round (Eggs Collective)

By | Published on Monday 7 August 2017

Three glitzed up ladies and a lot of booze – they’re out on the lash, and on a mission to have the ‘ultimate’ night out in Edinburgh. And we literally get to join in on their drunken antics, as they offer us shots of Caribbean Twist. I say offer, but these women “don’t take no for an answer”. With comical anecdotes that are all too easy to relate to, the stages of a night out are depicted with fearless honesty. Although the material is a little overwrought, the three actors are utterly compelling. Their philosophy is simple: all we need to fix us up and forget our troubles is a good night out – and I think they may be right.

Summerhall, until 25 Aug.
