'People don't really accept chickens, which is wrong, 'cos we invented the pecking order.'

Following a sensational sell-out run at the Old Red Lion Theatre in 2012, extended to an unprecedented eight weeks, Happy New proudly transfers to Trafalgar Studio 2.

The Australian outback. Danny and Lyle were abandoned by their mother in the chicken coop. Discovered after several months, surrounded only by hens, feathers, pecking and clawing, they are taken into care. Over the years, they've become media celebrities. Sultry TV journo Pru has entered their lives.

But now, society is bored with them. It's New Year's Eve. Tomorrow, Danny and Lyle must leave care and step out into the world alone for the first time. But are childhood traumas coming home to roost? What's Pru hatching? Why's she egging them on? Will they ever eat Nando's again? And of course, which came first?
