About ‘Megg the Egg’

Megg is a young girl born with an eggshell who wants to leave home to see the world. She dreams of becoming a chef, but her family fears that she’s too fragile. With the help of her best friend, she concocts a plan to achieve her dream.
As a Theater Bug Playground playwright, young writer Huck Paisley received guidance and professional mentorship through development, casting and production.
“Working with Huck has been a wonderful experience,” says Eppler. “His voice as a writer is exceptional. Every element of the play is unique and whimsical — the world, the characters, the food — but the real marvel is its unexpected depth and sincerity,” he adds. “It’s a wonderful play.”

‘Megg the Egg’ runs April 11 – 14 at the 4th Story Theater at West End United Methodist Church, 2200 West End Ave., Nashville. Tickets are $18 and available here. Tickets at the door are $20, if available. A limited number of subsidized and complimentary tickets are available for those unable to afford tickets.
