Happy New archive"People don't really accept chickens. Which is wrong, 'cos we invented the pecking order." 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 since then, 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 is she egging them on? Will they ever eat Nando's again? And of course, which came first? Following a sensational sell-out production in 2012 at the Old Red Lion Theatre, extended to an unprecedented eight week run, Happy New transfers to Trafalgar Studio 2 for four weeks in June 2013. Running time: 2hrs 10mins
