Quotes & Highlights
“Funny and poignant…incredibly open-hearted and generous” —_New York Post _
Eleven-year-old Emory yearns to flee the coop — literally. Gay, lonely, and trapped on the rural chicken farm run by his emphysema-addled, chain-smoking Nanna—who’s trying to “cure” him of his effeminacy, Emory dreams of running away to the city to achieve showbiz stardom. But before he can go, he must save his beloved chicken friend Linda from Nanna’s processing machine and try to connect with the bully who lives down the road. In this hilarious yet moving new show directed by Desdemona Chiang (who helmed the Impact smash hit Ching Chong Chinaman), playwright Joshua Conkel has conjured a brilliantly cracked and dangerous world filled with innocence, love, and ribald poultry.
