Joanne Ryan


"Ryan has crafted a history of both the joyous and tragic sides of female fertility in Ireland, and has deftly, with a few sly swipes, and some accurate research, anchored it in a world spectrum… The piece, beautifully directed by Veronica Coburn, is close to a masterpiece: intelligent, thoughtful, wry, funny, and above all, loving."

Looking down the barrel of her final fertile years, one modern Irish woman goes on a comical quest to uncover the ifs, hows and crucially the whys of reproducing her genes. Eggistentialism tells us the story of her consultations with family, fertility experts, fortune tellers, philosophers, daytime radio and the dark recesses of the internet.
