Eva O’Connor has been short listed for The Filipa Bragança Award at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2023!

Congratulations to Eva O’Connor who has been shortlisted for The Filipa Bragança Award, an award which recognises the best female solo performance by an emerging artist on the Fringe.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “The perils of fame as told by a fabulously feathered storyteller… Audience members who come just to see her play a chicken will not leave disappointed.” – Flora Gosling

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “O’Connor’s performance is mesmerising, with plenty of laughs punctuating this otherwise unsettling tale of exploitation, self-loathing and sacrifice.” – British Theatre Guide

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “CHICKEN is a rare gem, a fringe triumph that no words can quite do justice in describing, so cockle doodle-doo yourself a favour and see this show.” – Longstaff Reviews

“Masterfully portrayed by O’Connor… CHICKEN is unlike anything any of us have ever seen.” – Playbill

The winner will be announced on Friday 25th August. More information about the award and its history can be found here.

Written by Eva O’Connor and Hildegard Ryan, CHICKEN continues its run at Summerhall, until this Sunday 27th August at 8:50pm.  Tickets for the last few dates are available via the Ed Fringe website.

Eva O’Connor and Hildegard Ryan are represented by Frances Arnold.
