“The chicken doesn’t know, it doesn’t understand, it’s not conscious of the fact that someone wants to kill it …”
What’s the connection between a clandestine protest group in the throes of a break-up, a team of screenwriters in search of a concept for a TV series and a superpower grappling with a security threat? Just one name: George Kaplan.
George Kaplan is a play about the political stakes involved in myths and narratives, Hollywood’s influence on geopolitics, Alfred Hitchcock’s participation in an international plot and a chicken that could save humanity.
George Kaplan is directed by Abigail Graham. Cast includes Michael Ajao, Alex Austin, Rebecca Callard, Tom Goodman-Hill and Gabby Wong.
