First reviews for CHICKEN by Eva O’Connor and Hildegard Ryan at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2023!

CHICKEN is a new play written by Eva O’Connor and Hildegard Ryan, telling the story of love, fate, and adventure!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Eva O’Connor’s solo show CHICKEN is a masterful look at oppressive power structures from media hegemony to the global meat industry” – The Skinny

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “The narration contains real heart thanks to the strength of both script and performance, and in the end, you can’t help but unwittingly root for this drug-addicted celebrity chicken.” – fest

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “The perils of fame as told by a fabulously feathered storyteller… Audience members who come just to see her play a chicken will not leave disappointed.” – Flora Gosling

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “O’Connor’s performance is mesmerising, with plenty of laughs punctuating this otherwise unsettling tale of exploitation, self-loathing and sacrifice.” – British Theatre Guide

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “CHICKEN is a rare gem, a fringe triumph that no words can quite do justice in describing, so cockle doodle-doo yourself a favour and see this show.” – Longstaff Reviews

Directed by Hildegard Ryan and performed by Eva O’Connor, CHICKEN will run at Summerhall, Venue 26 until 27th August at 8:50pm, excluding Mondays.

Tickets are available now via the EdFringe website.

Eva O’Connor and Hildegard Ryan are represented by Frances Arnold.
