Chicken & Biscuits

Apr. 19 - May. 12, 2024


Hawks Mainstage


By Douglas Lyons | Directed by Tomica S. Jenkins


Who knew a funeral could be so fun? Laughter and love seep from this uproarious new family comedy. When the Jenkins family comes together to celebrate the life of their patriarch, skeletons in the closet are revealed. Family members at odds are challenged to accept each other for who they are—the good, the bad, the ugly and the hilarious. Love and commitment to family is at the heart of Chicken & Biscuits.
