I LAID AN EGG

I Laid an Egg is an original piece inspired by Margot’s childhood dream. Margot goes on an adventure with her imaginary friend, Egg, in an imaginary world made of shadows and household items. A show filled with many unexpected surprises and discoveries, I Laid an Egg bears elements of Shadow Theater, Object Theater, and music, inviting the audience into a child’s realm of make-believe.
