Play Title:Chicken Ranch
Runtime:11-30 minutes
Synopsis:This twenty-five-minute experimental play takes satirical aim at the social swirl of recent births of septuplets. Three Mothers highlight the worries and excitement of having multiple births after undergoing fertility treatment, and the Father expresses his concerns and pride at his paternal accomplishment. But the parents also double as prostitutes and client at a brothel, interweaving solicitations for sex with solicitations for help with the fragile newborn babies.
Into this mix arrives the Questioner, who interrogates the motives and insecurities at the heart of various expressions of sexuality and the procreative impulse. The play interweaves the dilemmas of such difficult multiple births with other more taboo kinds of sexuality, highlighting common elements of fantasy, scandal, and generosity in realms that appear diametrically opposed. In the end, the play foregrounds both the dreams and disappointments that pervade seemingly unrelated realms of sexual expression.
