It is 52 years since Peter Nichols’s debut play arrived in the West End and caused a sensation. Here was a young dramatist making a moving comedy out of a taboo subject: the strains on a marriage of bringing up a severely disabled child. The first half of Nichols’s play, in which we see parents Bri and Sheila adopting various defence mechanisms to cope with the situation, now arouses only fitful laughter. The couple engage in various forms of roleplay, with Bri sending up the deficiencies of the medical and clerical professions and memorably describing God as a sort of manic-depressive rugby footballer.

Peter Nichols’ funny and moving masterpiece, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, is the extraordinary play inspired by the author’s own experience of raising his daughter. A story about family, it shines a light on her parents’ caring for their disabled daughter, affectionately nicknamed Joe Egg, and how they live using wild wry humour to keep the family together.

Joe Egg is unlike any play I've seen; concerns about whether it's dated fade next to the claims that can now be made for it. It's in the collisions between pious and rogue thoughts that the play's energy lies. We don't know what to feel. Which is why, once seen, Joe Egg won't go away. Robert Butler, Independent on Sunday (1993).
