This Egg, made in collaboration with Made My Wardrobe presents


This Egg return to Manchester following last June’s Me and My Bee with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival award-winning dressed.

A costume maker, a theatre maker, a singer and a dancer. All friends since school, telling a true story.

After being stripped at gun point, Lydia set out to redress herself with a new healing set of armour. Lydia now only wears clothes she has made.

Dressed is about the power clothes have to define us, to liberate us, to hide us and to embellish us. It is about making something beautiful out of something dark and traumatic. Combining choreography, live sewing, comedy and original music, it is a celebration of female performance and friendship.

★★★★★ “Dressed is 60 minutes of ethereal brilliance… At the heart of Dressed is the way women are seen, or watched, by men. Clothes, movement and body language are all too often their response to this and these four formidable talents know that, take delight in subverting it and have created a top-notch performance as a result.” – Morning Star

★★★★ “A show that fashions something rich, brocaded and gossamer beautiful out of dark shadows… Watching it, I thought my heart might burst.” – The Independent

★★★★ “Just gorgeous.” – What’s On Stage

★★★★ “As beautiful and visceral as raw silk.” – The Stage

★★★★ “Beautiful, searching, painful… With joy, compassion and a rich flow of energy.” – The Scotsman

“Deep and rich and jagged… I loved dressed.” – Exeunt

“This show is so exquisite.” – Lyn Gardner
