With his wife pregnant and his best friend living on his couch, Wendell takes in a rooster to train for an illegal fight in the Bronx. As they discover that cockfighting is not for the faint of heart, this dysfunctional family comes to blows before the fight ever takes places. A devilishly written comedy that investigates power, community, and loss, and searches for grace in the most unlikely places. This play was commissioned and produced last year in by The Sopranos
star Michael Imperioli at his Studio Dante in NYC as a workshop production. New City Stage is thrilled to be bringing the first regional production to the stage.
"… a fierce piece of theatre that shatters the preconceptions of dysfunctional families and friendships to see the core that lies inside every relationship." – PhillyTheatreTalk.com
