Gil is a loser. He works at McDonald's, lives with his ailing mother, and hasn't had a girlfriend since...ever. But that's all about to change. He's been secretly training (and drugging) a rooster to fight. And Odysseus Rex (aka Odie) is the baddest barnyard bird there is. Gil has so much faith in Odie's abilities that he bets everything on him -- but victory and revenge may not yield the delicious spoils he anticipates. A fiercely comic play about cockfighting, connections, and clawing your way to the top.

"Keston John delivers an explosive and physically charged performance as prized cock Odysseus Rex...Christopher Neiman finds deep-seated resentment beneath the slick showman facade of Dickey, a slimy cockfight promoter who desperately wants to be the biggest, meanest guy in town. Kathleen O'Grady delivers a well-measured performance as a self-centered, emotionally manipulative and generally terrible mother, Lou. Amanda Celine Miller shines as Philipa, the feisty McDonald's manager with ambitions of her own. Travis Moscinski is the backbone of the play, as a bullied young man with a lot to prove. - RECOMMENDED"
