Eggs Collective: Smile Love It Might Never Happen
25 April 2019
Eggs Collective – Sara Cocker, Lowri Evans and Léonie Higgins – are a Manchester-based trio whose hit Edinburgh Fringe shows were followed by 2017 BBC Two pilot Get a Round. Now they return with Smile Love It Might Never Happen, their offbeat take on the legendary shops of TV comedies.

It’s cleaning day in the shop – Lowri is keen to save the planet, Sara wants to dance with her broom, and Léonie wants to end the myth that cleaning is for women.
When Lowri spots a suspicious stain, scrubbing turns to sleuthing: how did it get there and whose job is it to clean it off?

Three mysterious packages arrive at the shop and once the masking tape is ripped off and the contents are revealed, Sara, Lowri and Léonie are overwhelmed by what’s inside.
The day turns into a tedious version of Jumanji as the exasperated trio attempt to wrangle the unwanted cargo back into the boxes.

It’s the end of term in the shop and everyone’s ready to get the party started, but disaster strikes when Lowri reveals she hasn’t done the end of year report.
Léonie’s fuming. Sara suggests opening the cheap wine and getting the paperwork together so they can still get out and party – it’s just an end of year report, how complicated can it be?
