Craig Kelly to star in west end premiere of Chicken at The Trafalgar Studios

Craig Kelly in Chicken at Trafalgar StudiosNew Yorker Mike Batistick’s comedy Chicken will receive its UK premiere at Trafalgar 2 from 25 June to 21 July 2012.

Set in the Bronx, Chicken is billed as a “gritty play full of street-smart humour about two childhood pals, Wendall and Floyd, an unhappy wife – and a sickly rooster they are grooming for an illegal cockfight.”

The production will star Craig Kelly (Coronation Street, Queer As Folk), George Georgiou (Mamma Mia! The Movie) and Belinda Stewart-Wilson (The Inbetweeners).

Wendall (Kelly) and his pregnant wife’s stifling and cramped apartment is full of the mess of desperate people. Floyd (Georgiou) is kipping down on the sofa, and a visit from his father, his brash ex wife and the local hustler, clearly shows what an unstable upbringing and a burning desire for money can do – but will the cock be their meal ticket?

Chicken premiered off Broadway in 2008 starring The Sopranos actor Michael Imperioli at his theatre, Studio Dante.

Imperioli said of the play: “I loved the play from the first time I read it. I love the way Batistick handles New York: by setting it in this melting-pot environment it reflects any major modern city. The play is of our time, as it is filled with multi-cultural characters put in this pressure-cooker environment.”
