1/14/10 – 2/4/10
Meet an epically dysfunctional family plucked from Greek mythology and dropped square in the middle of Fast Food Nation.
In Clay McLeod Chapman’s teaser cow King Minos is a cattle baron hell-bent on world beef domination. Queen Pasiphaë can’t stay off the sauce. Their daughter spends her days slinging burgers and huffing cow patties to get high. And their son? He’s the Minotaur — a half-man, half-bull monster that only a mother could love.
Toss in a twelve-step program, a couple of severed fingers, and a kid-hating corporate mascot in a plush suit, and you’ve got one deliciously disturbing dark comedy.
"teaser cow is extraordinary... Chapman's writing is brilliant...
One Year Lease's production of teaser cow should be the first play you make sure you don't miss in 2010."
— Richard Hinjosa, NYTheatre.com
"A viscerally thrilling piece of work... One of the most interesting pieces I've seen in ages."
— Duncan Pflaster, Broadway World
“teaser cow should satisfy most audiences. The plot is cleverly constructed and entertaining…”
— Jonathan Lim, OffOffOnline
“teaser cow . . . rival[s] the sardonic wit of any Weeds episode . . . .
an ambitious play that’s well worth the price of admission.”
– Chris Kompanek, Flavorpill
Playwright: Clay Mcleod Chapman
