"We are going to liberate the hell out of 20,000 chickens."
Welcome to The Chicken Appreciation Society and welcome to the mind of former meat processor, Comrade Egg. She wants to change the world and she needs your help.
Comrade Egg and The Chicken of Tomorrow is a dark, funny and bold show about the meat processing industry. Using clowning, movement theatre and a high level of audience interaction, Comrade Egg explores themes of post traumatic stress disorder and collective action.
The performance on the 20th will be BSL (British Sign Language) integrated. Integrating in this way means that interpreter and actor Becky Barry will be part of the show, rather than on the side of the stage.
