Eigengrau / [ay-gen-gr-ow] / noun. Intrinsic light; the colour seen by the eye in perfect darkness.
Rose believes in true love and leprechauns. She has just moved into Cassie's spare room and is convinced Mark is her prince.
Cassie is engaged in a fervent struggle against patriarchal oppression. She is starting to wonder just how crazy Rose is and thinks Mark is a bit of a frog.
Across London, Mark believes in the power of marketing. He has already slept with Rose and has now set his sights on Cassie.
His flatmate Tim Muffin is engaged in a fervent struggle just to get out of bed. He is starting to fall for Rose and thinks Mark should get off his back.
Tim's Nan lives on their mantelpiece in a porcelain cat urn. She just wants some peace and quiet.
Opening as a rom-com, this modern urban fairy-tale takes a turn into darker territory as Penelope Skinner’s witty play takes a sharp, unflinching look at how contemporary men and women perform for each other in a tale of belief, manipulation, self-destruction, and Tim’s Nan’s porcelain cat.
Not suitable for under-16s. Contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.
