Chickens in the Yard

Chickens in the Yard was the first production of Hatch Arts Collective, and had its world premiere the weekend of June 7th, 8th, and 9th, 2013 at Fe Gallery in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood. Each performance sold out.

Chickens in the Yard is a new play that tells the story of a family through the eyes of their four chickens. Set in Pittsburgh, Chickens in the Yard explores what a gay identity means for one couple, as they journey from the families that raised them to the family they choose to create together. Amidst the struggle to define partnership and wrestle with individual family ties, Chickens in the Yard invites you to join them in taking one messy step forward.
