The Young & The Restless: Broiler

April 21 – 30, 2005

at Performance Works, Granville Island

by James Long

“James Long is a wonder: as dangerous as a downed and dancing high-voltage wire.” – The Georgia Straight

Broiler is a one-person show about a little chicken. A demonstration of how an individual sidesteps the truth in every situation. In fact, the only thing that seems honest about this fellow was the broiler chicken he was preparing for the audience to eat. There is a reality underlying the facade, however a very difficult one. As bits of it emerge things become more intimate, perhaps even uncomfortable. Kind of like the truth.

Broiler received three Jessie Richardson Theatre Award nominations, including:

Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for James Long
Outstanding Sound Design for Noah Drew
Outstanding Lighting Design for Itai Erdal
