    Eddie Izzard (2003 Drama Desk Award winner) and Victoria Hamilton star in Roundabout Theatre's production of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg. Peter Nichols' play concerns Bri (Izzard) and Sheila (Hamilton), and their handicapped child (nicknamed Joe Egg), aged 10. The parents invent conversations and personality traits for the child, even though she seems unable to communicate in any way. As Bri and Sheila begin to fabricate scenarios, their marriage comes under increasing strain. Laurence Boswell directs
