The creator of the global hit show Nate returns to Soho Theatre with her Edinburgh Comedy Award winning Laid.
A woman lays an egg every day and faces the decision: to raise it or eat it. A hilarious, surreal, melodrama of yolks, shells and funerals, Natalie Palamides’ Laid explores motherhood with absurd dilemmas, silly routines and surreal physical comedy.
‘One minute you are roaring with laughter, the next stifling a tear.’★★★★ Times
First performed in 2017, we’re bringing Laid back to our stage. Don’t miss Natalie’s stunning, critically acclaimed debut – the show that laid the way for her follow-up Nate, as seen on Netflix.
WINNER: Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2017 – Best Newcomer
‘Clowning tour-de-force… Palamides' crouching ovulations deserve all the standing ovations she receives.’
'Absurd and visceral... Palamides' performance turns your stomach, scrambles your brains and leaves you squawking with laughter.’
'Dark and original… Laid is unsettling comedy played with just the right amount of surprises and sassypants confidence.’
