NLP Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Des Dillon’s dark comedy Blue Hen. Starring Charlie Lawson (Coronation Street’s Jim McDonald), returning to the Citizens after success in Educating Rita.
Two redundant men. A blue hen. Twelve bloodthirsty chickens. One grave robber and a psychopathic drug dealer. Can Paddy and John use their working class wits to get through this one intact? Or will the roughest scheme in Coatbridge strip them of their dignity, their dreams, and their lives?
Blue Hen is a gritty, moving story about two ordinary guys who are out of work, out of patience and out of luck when they hit on a scheme to keep themselves occupied and their bellies full. They’re going to rear chickens out the back green.
From NLP, the company that brought you the hugely successful Singin’ I’m No A Billy He’s A Tim.
