Chicken. Road.

Chicken. Road.

by Lindsay Price

Why did the chicken cross the road? Why is the sky blue? What’s two plus two? Why did he kill himself?

A group of teenagers grapple with unanswered questions as they struggle to understand why someone would run out on to the highway in front of semi. Especially when that someone seemed to have it all.

Here’s a chicken. Here’s the road. There’s the other side. What do you do when there is no answer?

Praise for Chicken. Road.

Owen White
Valley Center High School
The show and writing are brilliant - the emotions within the text make it accessible to high schoolers in both interpretation and performance, while still presenting a challenge. We had multiple people coming up to us after our performance saying that they had cried or teared up, and the show was powerful to them and their life experiences.
