Year Of The Rooster

A gritty comedy about underground cockfighting

"He takes us into the peculiar sub-culture of cock fighting and finds in that fierce and funny world dark resonances of ambition, winning and losing that reach us all."

- Broadway World (on Playwright Eric Dufault)
Gil Pepper’s been down on his luck and the cards are just not coming up in his favor. He’s got a clingy mother, his younger boss at McDonald's is a total twerp, and his rival cockfighting nemesis, Dickie Thimble, is out for blood. In a weird twist of fate, he crosses paths with a new prize-fighting rooster named Odysseus Rex. Suddenly, Gil is experiencing victory and gaining the respect he deserves in the cockfighting scene. Way to go Gil. General admission. Over 16s only.
