Making its stage debut at this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival:
Written & Directed by Maddox K. Pennington
Love Chicken explores interpersonal questions of belonging, choices, and love. The main characters, Yan and Lolo, are struggling with the same challenges of friendship that so many adults do—particularly in the queer and trans communities where friendships can be difficult to develop and maintain in the shifting contexts of romantic and platonic dynamics. Complicating things further are Yan’s straight, cis husband Dave and Lolo’s new crush, Max, a bartender who is more comfortable holding back than expressing themselves. These conflicts unfold over the planning of a chaotic weekend getaway and an eventful night at Lolo’s apartment in the aftermath.
