Rice & Beans Theatre presents Chicken Girl

Chicken Girl follows the surreal adventures of a 24-hour Chinese fried chicken restaurant worker investigating the mysterious disappearance of her boss, Uncle Chan; a homesick intergalactic rock star drifting through space looking for his home planet; and a submariner embarking on a one-way pilgrimage to a legendary forest at the bottom of the sea with the help of a human-sized cat. Intertwining snappy dialogue, poetic ruminations, and flamboyant rock numbers, Chicken Girl is a vibrant reflection on the meaning of existence and an incantation to raise hope at times of colourlessness.

Written and directed by co-artistic director Derek Chan, whose multicultural aesthetic has been described by critics as "oddly compelling" and has a knack for making the audience feel "welcomed and comfortable in the hostile universe of [the plays he creates]," Chicken Girl is an unmissable experience dedicated to lovers of adventure and those of us who have been lost (and found) along the way. Chicken Girl is a rice & beans theatre production, developed as a company collaboration with Playwrights Theatre Centre, with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the BC Arts Council, and the City of Vancouver. This event is presented with support from the Vancouver Civic Theatres.
