Year of the Rooster

This is a past event. Saturday, November 18, 2017 more dates through November 18, 2017

CoHo Theatre 2257 N.W. Raleigh St., Portland, OR 97210

Year of the Rooster is a furious, foul-mouthed, comedic attack on heavy-weight subjects like rural poverty, animal cruelty and toxic masculinity in America.

“Ya gotta have winners and losers in this world.”

Gil is a loser in a loser town. He still lives with his mama, with no friends or future plans, just the 19-year old manager at McDonald’s who bullies his broken spirit while dreaming of Disney World and world domination. Gil’s chance at winning the American Dream is a nightmare until he gets a prize-fighting rooster named Odysseus Rex. Cockfighting was invented by the ancient Greeks (just like democracy); it is now illegal in all 50 states. The stakes are life and death, and the rooster is on stage. What are you willing to bet he wins?
