YEAR OF THE ROOSTER by Olivia Dufault
RAW AND DARKLY ENTERTAINING!
It is smart and unsettlingly empathetic, and is cannily performed in a superb new Dramatic Repertory Company show!

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.

"YEAR OF THE ROOSTER...isn't merely entertaining. It's astonishingly entertaining."
