Cockfight at The StoreFront Theatre
Theatre Brouhaha and Red One Theatre Collective get it on together with their coproduction of Cockfight by Kat Sandler.
Cockfight tells the story of the Chiavetti brothers: three hard-luck foster kids who have grown up to be adult rabble-rousers. Charlie Brehnan McKibbon has got a broken heart, August Jakob Ehman has a crush at work, and Mike Benjamin Blais has a scheme: he's bought a fighting rooster and is convinced he and his brothers can have the good life if he can train it to fight the same way he trained his brothers. Things get complicated when August's work crush, the thrill-seeking, though seemingly innocent Ingrid Caroline Toal accidentally ends up with the brothers' collateral...and the dangerous psychopath David Tompa who sold them the rooster comes looking for it. There are betrayals, songs, and a hammer fight before the brothers land at the cataclysmic conclusion that will test their family, their resolve, and each other more than they ever thought possible.
Tickets on sale shortly.
