Plucky ladies, ruffled feathers

World Premiere

Winner of FRINGE WORLD’s 2018 Theatre Award, Jane Hille (Anyman) returns with her brand new work The Chook House. This hilarious show follows five ‘would be’ friends that live in rural Australia, stuff chickens for a livin’ and dish the goss on anyone and everyone in their little towns.

Glenda and Shirley crack the whip at the poultry packaging plant; the latest is no swearing on the chicken boxing floor. This—along with the compulsory fitness classes—is starting to bubble under the skins of the women at the factory; all that’s left to stay busy is singing ditties and whispering complaints about these awful taskmasters.

The Chook House is a witty insight into the lives of women of different generations living in regional Australia and discovering who their true friends are.
