Everyone knows somebody who has suffered from cancer. Egan’s own journey has inspired her to explore the vulnerability, chaos and humour of that experience.
In Warrior, anti-heroine Katherine Kirk shows the many sides to her troubled mind as she time- travels through treatment, while also exploring her relationship with her brother Barry. This is a universal story of how we derive strength by turning adversity into opportunity.
It’s also a universal story about Kimmage.
Warrior fuses original live music, comedy and drama in an entertaining and provocative way, presenting the idea of patient as both warrior and prey. In her parallel universe, Katherine explores the light and dark sides of what cancer can do to a family, and celebrates the warrior within us all.

Almost everything about Egan is sharp; her intelligence and her wit… The former Nuala finds an ideal platform to flaunt her sensuality,
pathos and humour… often in the same moment.- The Irish Times
