Don Murphy is a proud Irish man, a hopeless ketamine addict and one of his generation’s greatest actors.

He also happens to be a chicken. A Kerry cock to be precise. Across one fateful night, the feathered Oscar winner shares his star-studded story with an intimate audience - from getting his big break, to his first bird on bird sexual experience, to navigating life in the (human-dominated) celebrity spotlight. But along the way Don will be confronted with some harsh truths about himself, chicken kind and humankind.

Sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2023. Winner of Filipa Bragança award for best Female identifying solo performer at the Edinburgh Fringe 2023.

Chicken is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
