Southern Freud Chicken
At the Stables Saturday March 8th at 7.30pm
Finishing school, frog gigging and a grand oral tradition. Southern Freud Chicken is the charming and poignant chronicle of a young man’s journey through time and culture to a place of reconciliation. Joel Houck is from South Carolina, “born and raised”. The son of proud stoic southern parents, he left the south at the age of 18 but his southern upbringing colours every aspect of his life though not always his accent. That is how he came to be a voyeur among Yankees. In his play, Southern Freud Chicken, Joel explores stereotypes held by northerners and southerners alike and exorcises the ghosts of family, tradition, and culture in a search for the meaning of the word “home”.
