While the live production was scheduled to be presented at rEvolver Festival in May 2020, it was cancelled due to COVID-19.

The team here at unladylike co. are dreaming up plans for a film / theatre hybrid which we hope to share with you this summer. 

Persephone and Hades have been trying to have a baby for nearly a year with no luck. Growing anxious, Persephone decides to see the fertility doctor, Eve, who also happens to be her mother. Problem is, Eve hasn’t spoken to her since she eloped with Hades, and Persephone has debilitating panic attacks whenever she tries to leave the house. Her world crumbling around her, Persephone must discover who she really is, aside from being a wife and daughter. Through a feminist and darkly comedic lens, bad eggs explores the parallels between two women who ate “forbidden fruit”.
