After multiple starts, stops, and full on cancellations due to COVID-19, this much-anticipated dark comedy by Chloé Hung's is finally here!
Synopsis: When Mother accidentally kills her husband, three generations of women must come together to solve a bloody situation. This darkly comedic play takes a look at the legacy of abuse, the power of family, and how to prevent the resurrection of a headless chicken.
Staged production originally scheduled for Spring 2020. Due to COVID-19, the production was adapted into a radio drama by CBC's Podcast, PlayME. Have a listen!
