Richard and Polly are brothers. Holed up in a knackered caravan on someone else’s land, their chicken has stopped laying and Rickson, the new land owner, wants them gone. Torn between loyalty as companion to his destructive brother or the chance of stability and working on the farm, Richard must make his decision before the fair leaves following the Easter weekend.

Chicken was performed at Southwark Playhouse in April 2011.
