THE STORY: Can rivaling sisters Baneatta and Beverly bury their father without killing each other? This proves difficult when Beverly shows up to the chapel with her “blessings” on display. Meanwhile, Baneatta’s son brings his neurotic Jewish boyfriend along, knowing Baneatta disapproves, and Beverly’s nosy daughter keeps asking questions no one wants to answer. Baneatta’s pastor husband tries to mediate the family drama, but when a shocking family secret reveals itself at the pulpit, the two sisters are faced with a truth that could either heal or break them.
“…a brilliant script that’s fresh, relatable and laugh-out-loud funny…CHICKEN & BISCUITS is more than just a church service…it is a much-needed therapy session, a portrait of Black joy, love and laughter…This play is both a Hallelujah and an A-men.” —Variety.

“CHICKEN & BISCUITS serves up roaring comedy…The play provides audiences with the blessed release of almost continual laughter…” —Broadway News.
