Friday and Saturday, Oct. 1 and 2, 8 p.m.
Hepburn Theater, Goodhart Hall

Theater artist Charlotte Ford creates avant-garde slapstick performance art that celebrates sublime stupidity with joyful abandon. In Chicken, Ford and her band of collaborators set their expressionistic clown play on a nuclear-powered submarine where “kitchen sink drama becomes gladiatorial bloodbath.”
 “Funny and startling…had people in the audience both helpless with laughter and totally unnerved,” Toby Zinman, The Philadelphia Inquirer.

—"Funny and startling and thought-provoking and just plain weird." Toby Zinman, The Philadelphia Inquirer
