Last chance to see Joe Egg + Peter Nichols: A Celebration at Trafalgar Studios
A Day in the Death of Joe Egg was a very personal piece for Peter Nichols, who also had daughter with cerebral palsy. Abigail sadly died at a young age and Joe Egg was Nichol's way of coping. The play's premiere in Glasgow in 1967 brought tears to Nichols' eyes.
