Sucking Eggs is a new theatre production at Alphabetti theatre in collaboration with Newcastle University and VOICE.

Sucking Eggs was co-created with members from the VOICE platform over a number of weeks in early 2020 to help create a script for a play around ageing. Sucking Eggs will be hitting the stage in June 2021 with both live shows in person, and digital livestreams. You can book your ‘pay what you feel’ tickets now for either a digital livestream to tune in from home, or tickets to be physically in the theatre watching the play. Full details and information for the performances are below:

Peter is in his late sixties and has accepted his ageing with grace. He is kept busy caring for his mother and his ever-growing obsessions with the “state” of the “bloody" world. His slightly younger sister Maggie, however, is kicking and spitting about getting old and determined to do so as disgracefully as possible. The siblings often nip and scratch but in times of trouble know that blood is thicker than tea.
