"The Year of the Rooster"

Thursday, January 16, 2014

In the play “Year of the Rooster,” actors Bobby Moreno and Thomas Lyons play characters that are human and/or animal. They talk about their roles, along with playwright Eric Dufault, whose play is about the gritty subculture of American cockfighting, mixing lowbrow, foul-mouthed humor with references to Greek myths and legends. “Year of the Rooster” is at the Ensemble Studio Theater through February 1.

A group of friends and I saw this play last Monday evening. It is terrific! Bobby Moreno gives an amazing performance. Go see it!

Thanks to Bobby Moreno for his reference to a book which reveals the tremendous suffering of millions of roosters who suffer and die daily in factory farms for our taste buds. Of course cock fighting is totally wrong, but it pales in comparison to what we do to chickens for Mickey D's and KFC.

Listen to this segment on cock fighting, and stay tuned for a pussy riot.
