New England Premiere

YEAR OF THE ROOSTER
by Olivia Dufault
directed by Sally Wood


with Chris Davis, Allie Freed, Chris Holt,
Erik Moody and Amy Roche




Gil is a loser. He works at McDonald's, lives with his ailing mother, and hasn't had a girlfriend since...ever. But that's all about to change. He's been secretly training (and drugging) a rooster to fight. And Odysseus Rex aka "Odie" is the baddest barnyard bird there is. Gil has so much faith in Odie's abilities that he bets everything on him -- but victory and revenge may not yield the delicious spoils he anticipates. A fiercely comic play about cockfighting, connections, and clawing your way to the top.
