‘Why did the chicken cross the road?' follows each of the words in that joke as a character as they try to figure out their meaning and reach the ‘real world'. A philosophical comedy rooted in the politics of Trump's America, this show enjoyed a sold-out, critically-acclaimed run in London last year!

REVIEWS OF THE LONDON PRODUCTION:

“With impeccable writing and close attention to identity dynamics, we leave ‘Why did the chicken cross the road?' feeling not only as though we have watched some fiercely sharpened performances all round, but as though we are better equipped for dealing with the chaos of the world.”

– Seline Cornfield, Strand Magazine

“A terrific show… managed to extend the conceit while deepening its resonance, keeping us entertained, and providing real warmth and meaning. Great performances in a hard-to-memorize script, too!”

– Dr. Ian Henderson, Lecturer at King's College, London

"Thus begins a surprisingly brilliant hero’s journey that at times is exceptionally funny, enlightening, courageous, and wildly thoughtful. Special mentions to “Road,” “Why” and “Chicken” but the real star of the show is Hennigar’s unfolding concept, offering to the audience a glimpse into who we are and what our purpose here might be."
