Book Description

Eigengrau / [ay-gen-gr-ow ] - noun. intrinsic light; the colour seen by the eye in perfect darkness

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.

In a city where Gumtree can feel like your closest friend, looking for the right person can lead you all the wrong places.

Penelope Skinner's Eigengrau premiered at the Bush Theatre, London, in March 2010 in a Strawberry Vale production.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit of air 8 July 2011
Format:Paperback
It's nice to have new dramas that focus on our time and our lives. This play is fresh and really brings the people of today into full dramatical characters. Have you ever felt like pushing grandmas when they slow down everyone on the tube? Have you ever been so excited that you can't speak properly anymore? Also, as for the writing, it is also really modern, and includes pages of words followig each other without making a sentence: a nice way to change chapters. I really recommend this for a break

A dreadful play. The female characters are nothing more than insipid cartoon cutouts of an idea of certain female 'types'. And badly written. Neither do the men don't fair well under Skinner's pen. I do not understand why this play would ever be produced. AWFUL.

3.0 out of 5 stars Took a LONG time to arrive 18 Feb. 2015
By W. Minshew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While our son tells us the play is a bit weird...it was required reading at his college. I will say it took a L-O-N-G time to arrive (hence, the three stars).
