Based on Australian playwright Vanessa Bates’ acclaimed memoir LEGS UP AND LAUGHING, which became the highly successful stage play EVERY SECOND, ALL OUR EGGS is a 9 part comedy drama webseries, covering five years in the lives it takes to make a life, navigating the highs and lows, the ups and downs, the herbal teas, the acupuncture, the headstands, the sex-by-stopwatch, the IVF procedures – all the agonies and ecstasies of the Great Big Fertility Ride.
Painfully honest, rawly funny, heartbreaking, but ultimately joyous and life-affirming, ALL OUR EGGS is the journey taken by a family…to make a family…with just a little more help than usual.
Directed by Martha Goddard, co-written by Martha and Vanessa, and produced by Dan Prichard, ALL OUR EGGS was funded for development through Screen Australia’s groundbreaking Gender Matters initiative.
The project has subsequently received further development funding from Screen Australia, and a Proof of Concept has been produced, starring RAKE‘s Adrienne Pickering, which you can see below.
Currently, we are working with Script Editor Megan Simpson Huberman on developing the scripts, before a further development in March 2018.
The full series of 9 episodes will be filmed in late 2018, with an expected delivery date of mid 2019.
