Screaming Chicken Presented...

Granville Island for "Sex, Violence and Nursery Rhymes"

Sneak Peek enjoyed September 13 at Granville Island's Arts Club, for the Screaming Chicken live production of "Sex, Violence and Nursery Rhymes", as part of this year's Vancouver Fringe Festival.

Considered Vancouver's most trail-blazing local dance/theatre company, the Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society is a not for profit theater/burlesque company specializing in 'pushing the boundaries' of modern theater.

According to Screaming Chicken, "Our shows take inspiration from traditional Burlesque, Gran Guignol, Vaudeville, b-movies of the fifties and sixties and pop culture. They feature elaborate costuming, props and make-up, sometimes beautiful, sometimes shocking."

Premise of "Sex, Violence and Nursery Rhymes", focuses on 'Mother Goose' (Camero Luvroc) and 'Sister Grimm' (Melody Mangler), in an 80 minute production featuring comedy, striptease and dark humour.

Other characters appearing in the show include 'Darla Devine', 'Connie Lingus', 'Mya Mayhem', 'Whisky Rose', 'Tart n’ Tiny', 'Violet Femme', 'Bernie Bombay' and 'Evil Bastard'.

Directors are Norm Elmore and Rebecca Franklin.
