"Chicken" is a gritty play set in the Bronx. It follows two childhood pals, Wendall and Floyd, as they train a sickly rooster for an illegal cockfight. As the dysfunctional friends scrabble and strut like cocks themselves, this acutely observed play explores what it's like to be the underclass in a modern city.

Hot House at Trafalgar Studios – 8th May to 3rd August 2013 Harold Pinter’s tragicomedy “The Hothouse” returns to the West End with Simon Russell Beale and John Simm in the lead roles. It’s Christmas Day in a state-run mental institution, but the inmates are still being subjected to a tirade of mindless cruelty by the maniacal leader. Pinter’s play is a commentary on the perils of unchecked power, and is as vital and pertinent today as when it was written in the 50s.
Happy New at Trafalgar Studios – 4th to 29th June 2013 Set in the Australian Outback, Danny and Lyle were found abandoned in a chicken coop, surrounded by hens and feathers, and taken into care. They soon became media celebrities, but now society is bored with them. And tomorrow, on New Year’s Day, Danny and Lyle must leave care and step out into the big wide world. But will their childhood traumas come home to roost?
