Eigengrau is the tale of two sets of London flatmates, Rose and Cassie, and Mark and Tim.

Rose believes in true love and leprechauns. Her flatmate Cassie is engaged in a fervent struggle against patriarchal oppression.

Across London, Mark believes in the power of marketing. His flatmate Tim Muffin is engaged in a fervent struggle against his own waistline.

When, in Eigengrau, circumstance throws them together, all four have their beliefs tested to devastating effect in this biting black comedy about trying to connect in a city where Gumtree can sometimes feel like your closest friend.

Eigengrau playwright Penelope Skinner’s previous plays include F**ked (Old Red Lion theatre). Her other work includes 1 In 5 and Stationary.

Eigengrau contains scenes of a sexually explicit nature and is suitable for theatregoers aged 15 and older.
